Most enterprise applications include a certain amount of logic that supports Identity -related features. Applications that can’t rely on Integrated Windows Authentication tend to have more of this than appeared to do. For example : web based applications that store usernames & passwords must handle password reset, lockout and other issues. Enterprise facing applications that use integrated Windows Authentication can rely on the domain controller.
