Are you making a change to your infrastructure that will affect your Active Directory? Have you considered or begun to deploy a virtualization solution? Are you planning to upgrade a server application that depends on Active Directory permissions or settings? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should consider a Microsoft Active Directory Assessment before you progress any further.
A proper Microsoft Active Directory design is critical to a functional network and organization. How do you grade your organization on deploying, managing, or extending its Active Directory infrastructure today? Do you have the required components, services, and related audit trails to support your requirements? Our Microsoft Active Directory Assessment provides a detailed analysis of your existing environment with recommendations and remediation plans to reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve your return on investment (ROI).
Our Microsoft-certified engineers follow a rigorous, well‑established process using industry best practices and procedures to perform a complete assessment.
We employ a review, report, recommend, and remediate methodology for our Active Directory (AD) Assessment.
A Design Review is performed which primarily focuses on technical interviews of key stakeholders to gather critical information pertaining to the design of the AD infrastructure. A review and analysis of any existing auditing policies and capabilities is also conducted.
A Configuration Review is performed in order to obtain configuration information for each AD component including forests, domains, domain controllers, member servers, services, applications, and workstations. A review and analysis of the structure, configuration, and related documentation of all critical business applications (such as Microsoft Exchange, SQL, and Lotus Notes) is also performed.
After we obtain the critical review information, we compile pertinent application logs and diagnostic reports using various Microsoft utilities.
Next, we provide a set of recommendations for issues resolution and infrastructure design improvements based on best practices and on the findings of the reviews and reports.
Finally, we work with you to remediate issues found in your AD environment to achieve immediate and long-term improvements.
Along with cost savings and ROI improvements, additional benefits include:
