Novell IT Consulting

Engagement Details

Painless Deployment from Industry Experts

The Novell Identity Manager Standard Deployment offering is a six-week consulting engagement with a small team of identity experts who will provide the guidance, expertise and proven methodologies you need to plan, design and deploy a world-class identity foundation. The engagement focuses on creating a core enterprise identity architecture that can facilitate and support the addition of more advanced identity management services later, but you can choose to add on to the standard engagement if you need specific capabilities immediately. The core offering includes the following phases and deliverables:


During this initial phase, an experienced project manager, senior architect and senior technical specialist will work closely with your team to identify and document your requirements, carefully assess all of the targeted end users and systems and develop a high-level architecture and implementation roadmap for your new enterprise identity management foundation.


Based on the final high-level roadmap, your consulting team will work with you to develop a detailed solution architecture, define and document all the necessary new eDirectory and Active Directory interactions and develop a detailed plan for deploying your new identity vault and connecting key directory systems. This new enterprise identity management foundation will feature a number of different Novell products and technologies, including Novell Identity Manager, SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server, Novell eDirectory, Novell iManager and drivers for Novell eDirectory and Microsoft Active Directory.

Build and test

This phase involves installing and configuring your complete enterprise identity management solution in an isolated laboratory setting, developing a detailed testing and deployment plan and conducting thorough integration testing. As part of this process, your consulting team will also help you perform user acceptance testing and make any necessary adjustments to the solution.
