Dell launched a project called Multi-Platform Management Integration, with the goal of making Microsoft Active Directory the master authentication system and overall source for all user accounts across all systems—including those running Microsoft Windows, IBM AIX®, Sun™ Solaris™ and various Linux operating systems. Quest’s approach allows organizations to achieve single sign-on from Active Directory for SAP® applications, the Oracle® E-Business Suite and the entire PeopleSoft life cycle.
