Binary Tree Announces SMART Directory Sync 4.3September 15, 2015
KENDALL PARK, NJ – (September 15, 2015) – Binary Tree, the SMART Migration Company, today announced version 4.3 of SMART Directory Sync, the product of choice for any organization that needs to establish interoperability between multiple instances of Active Directory, or between an Active Directory (AD) and a Domino Directory. The product, as its name implies, creates directory awareness between two disparate systems and synchronizes all objects and their properties—including users, contacts, distribution lists, shared mailboxes, and resources as well as AD passwords, sID history, and many other attributes. Whether an enterprise is migrating its messaging platform, merging entities, or establishing long-term interoperability between disparate directories, SMART Directory Sync is a powerful, scalable, and cost-effective solution.
“Directory synchronization functionality has been available for a number of years as an integral capability within our award-winning migration solutions. However, in working with numerous enterprise clients, we identified that these clients frequently had requirements to establish directory interoperability as part of non-migration initiatives, such as keeping multi-division or multi-national directories in sync, performing corporate directory integration, or M&A scenarios. As a result, we decided to make this functionality available as a stand-alone product with the release of version 4.3,” states Vadim Gringolts, CTO at Binary Tree.
Gary Steere, Microsoft Exchange MVP, Certified Master, and Principal Solution Architect at Binary Tree, adds, “Another use case for SMART Directory Sync, outside of migrations, is an enterprise that would like to make substantial changes in a staging Active Directory area without affecting production. Another example is to provide a unified, synchronized global address book of users who work in disparate public sector or government agencies where they need to communicate as a unified entity.”
An important aspect of SMART Directory Sync is its positioning vis a vis competitors. There are single-function products available that do not have the scalability or flexibility needed for an enterprise environment. On the other end of the spectrum, there are multi-functional products in the category of ‘identity manager software;’ however, those are not easily implemented, may be overly complicated, and usually require the assistance of outside consultants. SMART Directory Sync 4.3 is straightforward, highly functional, flexible to suit a variety of organizations, and scalable—both in terms of pricing and technology.
