The Blackbird Management Suite is well architected and is designed to include high levels of integration with the existing support modules for Active Directory and the Windows Server File System. The administrative interface for Active Directory makes use of the Windows Snap-in architecture for 3rd party products with the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). The File System management is done through an extended explorer thus maintaining the familiarity with the traditional Windows Explorer.
All this tight compliance with the Windows environment does a resplendent job of minimizing the learning curve and duplicity that can often confront IT administrators.
