Managing a computer network today is no small task. In addition to controlling access to printers and files over the network, most administrators must also manage security and access, optimize traffic flow across Local Area Networks (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs), coordinate repair and maintenance of network equipment, and oversee data backup, storage and recovery.

Directory service applications, such as Active Directory, provide a central location for managing network assets, such as domains, computers, users, groups, and so on. Active Directory organizes those assets into a hierarchical tree structure, which is typically viewed in a small window with expandable/collapsible icons, much like Windows Explorer. Just drag and drop pre-drawn shapes, double click and set the data.

The Directory Services solution provides administrators with clear, detailed representations of current and proposed directory structures, which can be viewed, printed and presented to management for planning new networks, coordinating migrations, and for documenting existing networks.
