Active Directory stores information about objects on the network and makes the information easy for administrators and users to find and use. Active Directory uses a structured data store as the basis for a logical, hierarchical organization of directory information.
In enterprises, the CIO organization deals with a high volume of incident/service request tickets falling on Active Directory for Password reset, account lock, provisioning of a new employee or termination of exit case, access controls, organizing users/groups/roles, etc. These scenarios are highly repetitive and the right candidate for automation with RPA technology.
Automation is getting necessary in all fields, be IT infrastructure automation, software development, operations processes, all IT organizations are using some form of artificial intelligence in their IT environment. With the adoption of cloud computing and new technologies human error is set to be vanishing in day to day operations.
