I’m now working as a Technical Consultant at Salford Software, a leading IT solutions provider here in the UK. Salford Software are a Novell Platinum partner, Microsoft Gold Partner and and are also partnered with Sun and Oracle. Their clients include colleges, universities, local government, NHS and commercial clients. Salford Software itself was formed by the University of Salford back in 1988. Since then they have built a very good reputation, with highly skilled in-house expertise. One of the biggest areas of specialism for the company is identity and access management, in fact they brand themselves as ‘The Identity Specialist’. I am working as part of the Professional Services team, and my primary focus is this specialist area. The team uses products from Novell, Sun and Microsoft. Currently my principle tool is Novell Identity Manager. My linux skills are coming on leaps and bounds and I work with SUSE Linux on a daily basis, primarily with Novell services such as eDirectory.
I keep in touch with former colleagues from the University of Nottingham, which is just down the road, and we meet up regularly for cold beer and pork scratchings! Funnily enough I am now working on one of the same projects I was when I was at UoN except now I am sitting on the opposite side of the table as an IDM consultant with Salford Software.
