Decentralization and Delegation of Active Directory Management Made Easy for GPISD Through ADManager Plus

The Crisis:

With over 27000 students and 3500 staff, the GPISD was a massive organization that handled colossal amounts of sensitive data. The sheer magnitude of these numbers made AD administration an unsurmountable task to the admin. This demanded a controlled decentralization of powers over the Active Directory,without getting alienated from the delegated authority. The para-government organization was looking for an Active Directory manager that will assist in:

  • Delegating authority to campus mentors to change passwords.
  • Enable lab staff to create and manage accounts within the lab.
  • Create user account in bulk by importing a .CSV file comprising names and relevant account information.

The Solution:

ADManager Plus had all the credentials and the features that were needed to catch the eyes of the campus mentors in GPISD. With features to delegate helpdesk authority for resetting passwords and most importantly, bulk user management and affordable pricing have made ADManager Plus, a choice beyond question for GPISD.


Working together:

GPISD, with the plethora of data it handles, the number of schools and consequently, the number of staff and students, had to effect bulk modifications in the AD, such creating a sea of student accounts in Active Directory during every academic intake, just with an import of student data.

In addition to that, the delegation of helpdesk authority empowered the campus mentors to reset passwords in a non-invasive way. The same feature also enabled the lab staff to create users for the specific labs they deal with.

Above all this, the ease of installation and deployment, and the ease on the budget were also contributing to the appeal.

In short, ADManager Plus helped GPISD frame a constitution for their Active Directory that clearly defined the powers and privileges given to each technician and administrator.
