Linux NIS usage

In the scenario where a company has windows domain in place, which mos of them do, I wonder if NIS or OpenLDAP server is needed. Seeing that now you can authenticate Linux computers to Active Directory and users can login to linux computers after authenticating with Active Diretcory.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

At my last place we implemented SFU (2003) and identity management for unix (2008 R2) and was able to authenticate in linux using kerberos without needing samba or winbind.  

Windows no longer has IMU as of 2012 R2 so another solution would have to be implemented if that's something you are looking to do.
