A global operator of regulated exchanges and clearing houses recently acquired a financial data services company. To help the 5,500 employees of the newly-minted company collaborate effectively, it needed to integrate its Active Directory and Exchange environments.

But there was a catch: it needed to unite its systems while meeting the increasing standards set by the highly-regulated financial services industry. Specifically, it had to migrate without the benefit of a trust relationship between the Active Directory environments.

To help it meet this challenge, the client turned to Active Directory Pro from Binary Tree. This platform automates the migration of Active Directory environments, including mobile users. All the while, it ensures that users have seamless access to resources in both the old and new domains. Active Directory Pro shortens the timeline for a project and reduces human error by automating complex tasks. It’s simple to deploy and customise for any migration scenario and has an intuitive user interface to manage the entire migration. The client also implemented Binary Tree’s Exchange Pro to consolidate its separate Exchange messaging systems, again without having to disrupt users.

“We’ve given enterprises with diversified workforces even more flexibility to deploy our software however they need,” says Vadim Gringolts, chief technology officer at Binary Tree. “The goal is for users to keep working during the migration – without even noticing that you’re doing a migration.”

By aligning with Binary Tree, this global operator of regulated exchanges successfully navigated a digital transformation project to lower operating costs and speed collaboration. And they did it all with unparalleled efficiency.
