Companies often depend up on Active Directory as corporate white Pages. Since Active Directory is used for decision making in the corporate, it is important to maintain the employee's information such as address, contact details, designation etc up to date in it. Employees retrieve their co-worker's details through Outlook, which uses Active Directory to pull the employee's detail. In short, entire organization uses Active Directory information for their official purposes.
Maintaining the employee's detail up to date in the Active Directory is a cumbersome task for admin or help desk. They must spent few hours to check whether the information is accurate or not. If an employee changes his phone number or moves to some other location, his new information has to be updated in Active Directory. If it is not done, co-workers may retrieve the incorrect information during a needy situation and results in unnecessary burdens.
