Binary Tree Announces SMART Active Directory Migrator 9.0April 2, 2015
KENDALL PARK, NJ – (April 2, 2015) – Binary Tree today announced release 9.0 of its SMART Active Directory Migrator. Designed for enterprises of any size, this solution is critical for most Active Directory migration, restructuring and consolidation projects. SMART Active Directory Migrator reduces the cost and effort associated with Active Directory migrations, consolidations or platform upgrades, minimizing the impact on user productivity.
For many businesses, migrating to a new Active Directory (AD) domain can be tricky. It’s no small task to move users, devices and applications, in addition to modifying desktop profiles—all while ensuring that users have seamless access to resources in both the old and new domains. The full-featured, comprehensive nature of Binary Tree’s SMART Active Director Migrator solution makes it suitable for carrying out any type of AD migration.
According to Vadim Gringolts, CTO, at Binary Tree, “Version 9.0 has been significantly enhanced—it’s now much more streamlined for fewer prerequisites, with easier project execution and scalability, as well as improved performance. Based on a completely modern client-server architecture, the workflow in this version enables not just directory migration, but also ongoing directory synchronization. Furthermore, because the software deploys lightweight agents onto remote or virtual devices, enterprises with diversified workforces have total flexibility to deploy the software however they’d like.”
Given the critical nature of Active Directory to the IT infrastructure as well as to many business applications, a variety of drivers underscore its importance including:
• Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures and Spin-offs
When organizations go through a merger or acquisition, they need to combine the AD environments of the two organizations to enable the new combined entity to operate as a cohesive whole. Similarly, when organizations divest or spin-off parts of their operation, they need to segregate the parts of the AD environment that relate to the divested/spun-off operations for the new owner or new entity.
• Messaging Migration
Given the interconnectedness of AD and the Exchange messaging system, an AD migration may be initiated when a company decides to upgrade or consolidate its Exchange environment or move its messaging platform to a cloud or hosted service.
• IT Consolidation
For those initiatives designed to cut costs, increase efficiency and reduce administrative overhead, consolidating Active Directory domains and forests can reduce the complexity of managing AD.
• Security and Compliance
Many organizations consolidate their AD environment to make it easier to control user authentication and authorization, as well as to meet compliance requirements.
SMART Active Directory Migrator 9.0 is now generally available from Binary Tree and can be purchased directly from Binary Tree or via one of the company’s SMART Partners.
