Access "Case Study: Johnson Matthey consolidates Active Directory with Dell"

Published: 05 Aug 2013

Chemicals manufacturer Johnson Matthey has used tools from Dell to simplify a complex, multinational Active Directory infrastructure. The company has evolved from autonomous business units. The organisation used to run Novell servers with Novell directory services across 120 sites, all of which were administered by separate IT teams. As part of a re-organisation of IT – from regional organisation to a centralised structure – Johnson Matthey found it had over 30 Active Directories. Stephen Way, divisional IT director of Johnson Matthey, said: "We had a very devolved structure with every site using its own Active Directory. We recognised we needed a single directory." There was no incentive for Johnson Matthey to simplify its Active Directory infrastructure, but Way said: "We had plans to move off Novell and we wanted to deploy SharePoint across the company."
