Engagement Details

Privileged User Manager Deployment Made Simple

The Novell Privileged User Manager offering is an on-site engage­ment that establishes a flexible, yet defined, super-user management policy. You can easily administer, monitor and expand this policy to include more systems, applications and users as your needs change. The core offering leverages the Novell Unified Delivery Process and includes the following specific phases and deliverables.

During this initial phase, your consulting team will work with all of the important stakeholders and subject matter experts in your organization to develop a high-level understanding of your environment and objectives. This includes conducting a direction setting exercise to identify your business objectives, define initiatives and establish clear privileged user management goals.

The elaboration phase uses the findings from the inception phase to carefully assess your business and technology requirements, define the scope of your Novell Privileged User Manager deployment and map your requirements to specific functional areas. This requirements assessment leads directly to the development of a detailed design that brings all the pieces together into a cohesive architecture.

This phase involves installing and configuring your super-user management solution in an isolated laboratory environment, 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.

After constructing and testing the solution in a lab setting, your consulting team will work with you to deploy the final pilot solution into your live production environment—and then make arrangements to provide the assistance and support you’ll need going forward. After the engagement ends, you’ll have the documented knowledge in place to use the solution effectively and quickly extend a secure privileged user management solution across all your Linux and UNIX systems.
