Mergers and Acquisitions: Controlling Impacts on Active Directory and Exchange

In today’s fast-paced marketplace, organizations are often faced with mergers or acquisitions to remain competitive. Government organizations and agencies often need to merge whenever a political change comes into effect and restructures governmental services. Both situations demand a restructuring of underlying infrastructures such as Active Directory and Exchange email systems. 

There are three possible approaches:

  1. Keep the existing infrastructures in place as is and synchronize directory and email contents.
  2. Move all data from one or more structures into another existing structure from one of the merging parties.
