Many components of the System Center 2012 suite are related to each other and can exchange and share information with each other. Also, other IT components such as Microsoft Active Directory can synchronize information with SCSM 2012 (for instance, users and computer information). All CIs are stored in the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) in System Center 2012 Service Manager.
Before you plan the connections of the System Center 2012 components and Active Directory, you should identify the compliance-management-related IT items.
Based on the different requirements of regulatory documents, the required and related items may vary.
