Techopedia explains Active Directory Management (AD Management)

Active Directory monitoring is typically performed manually by the server/network administrator using the AD and Windows Server native administration and management features and components. The primary objective of AD monitoring is to automate Active Directory user provisioning processes, compliance with regulations and audits, security, and access to each user’s account and preferences from a central location. AD management is also performed through purpose-built software designed to automate most of the AD management processes.
