Having heard that Active Directory supports LDAP out of the box, we intend to us it for single point of authentication and authorisation for all our upcoming software development projects rather than creating separate users within their respective databases.

The challenge is, in one of our existing application dealing with Human Resource dept. , having Oracle 9i in the backend, most of our employee data is currently stored, e.g, employee name, User Type, Employee Id, Name, Location, Department, Discipline, Email Id etc., and this needs to be actively synced with my LDAP directory of AD. So whenever someone adds, alters the respective fields within my HR application, it should be replicated to mu AD LDAP from where all the new applications that are in their various stages of design, will further, reference it.

How do I bring about this auto sync rather than manually filling up these fields everytime in my AD?

Pls advise!! Open for furher clarifications (if any).
