We have just acquired Windows Azure active directory.  On our premise, we already have a 2003 Domain server that has DHCP, DNS.

What exactly can Azure do for us that will make things more secure?  Can it replace active directory on our domain?  If so, what happens to the DHCP and DNS?

It integrates with your on-premise Active Directory
