In the corporate world, Active Directory works in the same manner as corporate white pages does. It is used for decision making and hence, maintaining and updating the employee's information like address, contact details, designation in the directory is important.
Employees retrieve their co-worker's details through Outlook that uses Active Directory to draw the employee's detail. In short, the entire organisation uses Active Directory information for their official purposes.
Maintaining an updated detail of the employees in Active Directory is a cumbersome task for admin or help desk. Moreover, spending a few hours to check accuracy of the information is vital. If an employee changes his/her phone number or moves to another location, the latest information has to be updated in Active Directory. Failing to do so will result in retrieving incorrect information during a needy situation, adding unnecessary burdens. Even the valuable time of administrator goes in vain because of updating wrong detail entered by user.
