As an IT admin, you must stay in control of your Active Directory (AD), no matter what time it is or where you are. Microsoft's solution to help you when you work remotely or work from home is its Remote Server Adminstration Tools (RSAT), which help manage Windows servers—and more importantly, your AD infrastructure—remotely. While RSAT allows you to manage your AD environment from wherever you are, it is accompanied by complexities such as requiring snap-ins for any task that needs to be carried out, lack of reporting, and more.
ManageEngine gives you an alternative with its web-based tool ADManager Plus, allowing you to do so much more than just manage your AD environment.
ADManager Plus allows you to manage your AD, Exchange, Office 365, and Skype for Business (formerly Lync), and G Suite environments from within your organization's premises, or even remotely. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser. It simplifies several routine tasks such as provisioning users, cleaning up dormant accounts, and more. It also offers more than 150 pre-packaged reports. Build a custom workflow structure that will assist you in ticketing and compliance, automate routine AD tasks, and much more with ADManager Plus. You can even manage your employees' AD user accounts right from your mobile devices using ADManager Plus' Android or iOS apps.

RSAT—while introduced to make AD administration easy—is cumbersome to use, owing to the numerous RSA snap-ins that need to be installed to manage AD objects. Other administrative actions, such as managing multiple AD objects at once, require PowerShell scripting, which makes things even more complicated and time-consuming.
ADManager Plus, on the other hand, removes a major chunk of the administrative weight off your shoulders with its simple deployment and straightforward interface. In addition to AD objects, you can also manage and report on Office 365, Exchange, G Suite, and Skype for Business (formerly Lync). What more do you need, really?
