I currently work in a department focusing on developing software on the .Net platform. They come from a linux/php setting and have moved as a team onto the Windows world.
The team have set up a nice CI system, based on heterogeneous systems for source control, build server etc. (6-7 systems). Each one contains its own isolated user management, resulting in new developers/consultants have to be created and managed in each system.
What I am looking for is some nice cost/benifit justifications for rolling out an AD in the department.
Personally I find that AD is ubiquitous in the Windows world, but that in itself is not enough argumentation.
Any help would be appreciated.
