How organizations are connecting their on-premises identities to Azure AD

Community Manager

If you follow the blog, you know that Microsoft supports a wide array of options for connecting an on-premises directory or IAM solution to Azure AD. In fact no one in the industry gives customers as many options as we do.


So it’s not surprising that one of the questions customers ask the most is which one is recommended. We're always a bit hesitant to give an answer. Over the last 6+ years working in the identity industry, we’ve learned that every organization is different and has different goals and requirements in terms of speed of deployment, security posture, ability to invest, network architecture, corporate culture, compliance requirements and work environment. That’s one of the reasons why we’ve invested in giving you options, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.

Over 7% use legacy sync tools.


Suggestion: Those customers should receive an email to the Tenant Admins to Upgrade to AD Connect.
