ELEVATE HR, INC. RELEASES elevateAD™: STANDALONE INTEGRATION FOR MICROSOFT ACTIVE DIRECTORY & MICROSOFT DYNAMICS 365 SUITE
Elevate HR announced today the release of elevateAD™, its expanded, standalone Active Directory Integration App for the Microsoft Dynamics 365 suite. elevateAD, previously released as part of Elevate HR’s integrated HCM platform, tightens enterprise security and reduces risk of human error through bidirectional synchronizations between Active Directory and Dynamics 365 or Dynamics AX 2012. elevateAD can now manage both local Active Directory—including Organization Units—as well as Azure Active Directory from either ERP platform, and can operate independently of Elevate HR’s other software products.
Microsoft’s Active Directory manages system access and security for organizations; elevateAD automates enterprise security management for all Global Address Book records.
“Dynamics 365 offers purpose-built Apps that combine to deliver exponential value to Microsoft customers. Elevate HR’s elevateAD exemplifies that model,” says David Erickson, CEO of Elevate HR. “Our founding principle is simple: put the power of design in the hands of the users. Pair our elevateAD with Elevate HR’s HCM Effectiveness App, and customers get a powerful suite that brings design thinking to the world of HR.”
elevateAD bears the hallmark of all Elevate HR apps: complete end-user configurability. With elevateAD, organizations manage Active Directory (AD) as a natural outcome of business process. Users configure policy- and date-driven parameters so that creating a contact, onboarding a vendor, or hiring an employee triggers the creation and activation of their AD user account. Seamless bidirectional synchronization between Dynamics 365 and AD gives your company’s employees, customers, or vendors the access they need, when they need it, without delay or manual intervention. Terminate an employee or end a contract and elevateAD automatically deactivates AD user accounts and access to all systems. elevateAD respects AD account security options including Kerberos DES encryption types, smart card interactive logins, and sensitive accounts.
