Wisdom UK 2019 Session:
Leveraging and Managing AD to support ITAM
We all know that AD tends not be most people’s priority and that most architects only pay lip service to this tool in order to get their products working or into service. It’s often overlooked, poorly managed/maintained yet it is a linchpin for everyone. For SAM, Active Directory is a critical tool and can be leveraged to show an organisation the extended scope of ITAM and how it can add additional value and services outside of its supposed remit.
