Steve Plank, Architectural Engineer, Microsoft, says: "Capgemini then wanted new and deleted groups with new and deleted members to be automatically maintained in Active Directory and for the migration team to be kept up-to-date by automated emails of all these activities."
Plank says:
"Capgemini tried other vendors' products but they were difficult to use and weren't able to give the responsiveness that the business needed."

"Capgemini tried other vendors' products but they were difficult to use and weren't able to give the responsiveness that the business needed."
Andy Lambert and Steve Plank both agreed that one approach was to employ MIIS 2003 in order to provide the required coexistence between NT4.0 and Active Directory.
Plank says: "The company is using Microsoft technology for something that wasn't immediately thought of in the initial project."
Plank says that MIIS 2003 has helped accelerate the migration process between the legacy system and Active Directory, because not absolutely everything has to be in place before users are migrated across.
