Software Tools To Be Thankful For

In the spirit of today’s holiday, I figured I would run down a list of software tools that make an identity management implementation that much easier.

SSIS [Windows]
Whether it’s sanitizing, organizing, or just moving large amounts of data, this tool does it all and more.

Notepad++ [Windows]
This super text editor is a must have for anyone who does light or even heavy coding. One great feature that this editor offers is the ability to display text in different coding languages such as SQL or VB, which makes coding a whole lot easier on the eyes.

Grep [Linux]
A lean, mean, command line tool used to search for string patterns or regular expressions in text files. There’s no doubt that grep is one of the most powerful *nix commands in your command line arsenal.

VMware Server (or virtualization in general) [Linux, Mac, Windows]
Set up a virtual environment, do some testing, then blow it all away. Check out my thoughts on the new VMware Server 2.0.

Google
There’s a wealth of information out there on the web, especially code. When you’re on an implementation, the last thing you need eating up your time is having to reinvent the wheel. Google it!

Have any tools that you’re thankful for?
