Imanami Introduces Group Lifecycle Management for Active Directory

    GroupID 5 Eliminates Group Glut

    LIVERMORE, Calif., June 10 /CNW/ -- Imanami, the emerging leader in Group
Management Solutions, announced today GroupID 5, the first solution to focus
on all stages of group lifecycle management: automation, self-service and
synchronization.  Managing distribution and security groups requires a group
management process to handle group expiration and ensure groups are accurate. 
In addition, GroupID's group lifecycle solution features allow for multiple
group owners and support for Exchange 2007.
    Imanami puts a spotlight on the lifecycle of a group, managing from the
cradle to the grave.  The new GroupID management suite includes:

    -- Automate -- automates the creation and management of groups
    -- Self-Service -- pushes group management to the user with IT staff
    -- Synchronize -- ensures the accuracy of Exchange Active Directory
    -- Reports -- "SmartR" provides metrics on group accuracy and changes
    "On average, it can take 10 minutes for both our administrators and our
users to update each group. Multiplied by 2000 groups, that's a significant
amount of time that our administrators could be doing business-critical
projects," said Mike Ruman, enterprise messaging manager, Grant Thornton.
"Group ID eliminates the burden by automating the process, and enabling IT
staff to focus on more pressing IT issues."
    Enterprises can have up to eight times more groups than users, and each
group must be continually updated with each new employee, departure,
promotion, internal moves, or when a group ends. Group expiration is the key
component of a group's lifecycle.  GroupID offers an automated way to expire
or renew groups cluttering the Global Address List.
    GroupID reduces the load on the IT staff and helpdesk by automating the
group management process. Imanami's group lifecycle management solution
increases employee productivity by ensuring users are in the correct
distribution lists immediately. In addition, GroupID improves security by
ensuring the accuracy of each security group automatically.
    "Our customers need a solution to manage group glut, and tell us their
Active Directory is out of control," said Robert Haaverson, CEO, Imanami.
"Group ID allows them to manage the entire lifecycle of a group, from start to
    Pricing and Availability
    GroupID 5 will be available in the Fall of 2008.  Pricing for GroupID
runs $5 to $20 per seat.
