In an extremely close race, Aelita Software's Aelita Enterprise Directory Manager (EDM) narrowly defeated SystemTools.com's Hyena to win the award for Best User and Directory Management Tool. One reader commented, "Another excellent benefit of this tool means I have reduced the user-creation process down to seconds instead of 40 minutes."

EDM provides a secure "Rules & Roles" management platform that facilitates account and resource provisioning for Active Directory (AD) and Microsoft Exchange Server. Rules-based policies ensure that each administrative action is consistent with enterprise security standards, and flexible, granular access controls increase the capacity of administrator roles.

EDM provides Managed Units that separate the administration framework from an enterprise AD design by spanning organizational unit (OU), domain, and forest boundaries. EDM facilitates integrating AD with network data sources such as human resources (HR) and accounting systems.
