VitalQIP will be fully integrated with their Microsoft Active Directory implementation. These combined services ensure 100 percent uptime and a seamless approach to managing a continually changing network.

"Lucent Technologies' products and services that form the VitalSuite solution provide effective and easy-to-use tools for managing the enterprise IT infrastructure and quality of IT services.
