  • Question

  • Hello Techies,

    I know this is technical forum, but seeking your expert advice to know more about the career prospectus of a FIM administrator/developer.

    I’ve a total of 8 years experience in AD administration and now moved to Identity manager team where have to support FIM 2010, OIM11g and some other identity in house tool.

    To be honest, I’m in dilemma as not sure should I sustain with the new profile along with my AD expertise and I am more interested to know about MS FIM (did some research and understood that FIM is also packed with MS Azure and MS is started investing more on identity product) so if AD + FIM administrator will be a step ahead / consider a specialist (rather than in AD alone) in the market keeping in mind technologies moving rapidly to cloud?

    Please, would you all share your feedback and if think is a positive move? And if yes I can start learning FIM (heard that to be good in FIM, to be good in SQL table/view/query & C#)

    Thanks in advance and I’m really obliged to your responses.

    Regards

    Rahul

  • Sounds like you have an excellent opportunity to gain some great knowledge and skills. The best AD guys in the world can command high fees and salaries but if you aren't the best of the best at AD then adding FIM to your skillset (and Oracle IM shhh -- don't tell anyone else I said that ;) definitely makes you more valuable.

    As far as skills yes learn T-SQL, C# but don't forget PowerShell (both PowerShell in general and the commandlets for FIM).
