Temple University in Philadelphia is the 26th largest university in the country. Temple's 17 schools and colleges provide higher learning and research capabilities for 45,000 students and 10,000 faculty members and staff. As is typical for any large educational institution, managing the IT infrastructure is a huge challenge. The various schools and departments are largely autonomous in choosing what devices and applications they install, but at some point, everyone and everything across the university has to share a topline directory system.
