Directory overview

TIM Enterprise is designed upon an object-based directory that places no limits on its hierarchical width or depth. This approach permits the integration of multiple sites within one centralised system, where every user can be grouped into folders, sites, cost centres and divisions, allowing you to create an exact replica of your company's internal structure.

Every system object of the Directory has an explicit, defined relationship with its peers and an entire tree of related objects can be defined, with no width or depth limits of the branches.

To facilitate the configuration and management of large systems, TIM Enterprise supports directory synchronisation with third-party applications such as Active Directory and Cisco AXL.
