Creating a new AD Contact when inserting contact information into a SQL server

Hey,
We currently have a SQL server with contact information used for our billing system and such,
where we insert information about new clients and suppliers.
We've also just installed Microsoft Exchange 2010 and would like all of those contacts to be imported into AD as Contacts.

Ive bulk-imported our existing contacts into AD by using EMS.

To avoid having to add new contacts on both places every time we get a new contact, I was hoping there could be a automated process where AD gets "syncronized" with the SQL server when we create new contacts on the SQL server.

Any suggestions?

You can use identity managing software such as ILM (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/idm/ilm.mspx) this software allows you to map between database fields to ad user fields, it can automate tasks such as user and email creationg, etc.

otherwise you can use automize the export of the db users and create a script script that reads that file and creates the missing users, this second method is not very recommended since it is more complex to create and execute but it is doable.
