Before making major changes in their environment (e.g. an upgrade/implementation of new technology), it is highly recommended to perform an Active Directory Health Check in order to proactively avoid unpleasant surprises.
Active Directory constitutes a central component of the IT environment and is the focal point for authentication, security and administration in a windows based network. Incorrect permissions, login difficulties, system failure can all be effects of an incorrect and inconsistent configured environment. Errors triggered by for example a system upgrade and impossible to detect prior to a health check. If not attended can these errors disrupt business functions and cause severe damage.
Active Directory is the cornerstone of an increasing number of business functionalities, every year more work hinges on stable Active Directory operability and security.
In order to secure a well-functioning Active Directory it is highly recommended to run a health check once a year and prior to major upgrades and implementation of new technology.
A health check can also serve as an audit, reviewing the quality of work by external partners or as an objective report verifying a need for necessary IT investments. It can also serve as a part of an investigation to locate the reason for technical issues.
