I hear the SSO requirement regularly. Probably the archetype for a strong enterprise architecture has a firewall outside and a directory of identities inside that passes authentication to Kerberos. Businesses with directory servers are trying to consolidate, but Microsoft has succeeded in making that an ugly problem unless it's all AD. Regardless, Gartner had a study 3 years ago with sage advice: the idea that there will be one single directory per organization is fallacious.
