It used to be that you would have to manage your Office 365 username and password separately from your Windows account. Memorizing too many passwords is a pain; fortunately, we can integrate your AD with the cloud in just a few hours. Please note this service requires that we set up AD Connect (formerly DirSync) on one of your local machines, and that if we do it on a workstation (instead of a server) Microsoft won’t support it.
Experience has taught us that the AD Connect solution works best for larger organizations, say 100 users or more, and it probably isn’t worth the administrative burden if you have fewer than 50 users. A less expensive alternative is Windows Server Essentials for Office 365.
