Here at NetIQ, we make software and constantly improve our solutions based on your experiences and feedback. As a result, in the very near future you will see new versions of AppManager and Sentinel launched. Now to get the scoop, the skinny, on the new Sentinel 7 and AppManager 8 there will a BrainShare session on them you really should not miss; but I digress.

Innovation is a key ingredient in that product development. To keep that innovative spirit fresh and active this week is our annual PlateSpin Hack Week. Our PlateSpin engineers and development team will be
building things that are outside their normal work, be given free reign to work on some challenges we are laying out to
see if we can spur some innovation and inventions, and work on projects and ideas they are most interested in.

Later this week I hope to let you in on some of the exciting projects from this PlateSpin Hack Week.

There aren’t many rules – basically we’ll work in small teams and share our projects with the company at the end of the week. What will happen with each project will be determined once it’s complete. Some may ship immediately, others may be added to the roadmap and built out in the future, and the remainder may serve as creative inspiration.

If you have an idea for one of our PlateSpin teams add a comment below or send a tweet to @NetIQ. We’re always looking for feedback.

    I would love to see the CLI become a more robust tool. I can already add computers/ and users to groups, but i if go with an vanilla Active Direcorty solution, i can modify any attribute on any object, script it, and log the process to boot. With PowerShell, the output comes in usable .net objects. I think if DRA wants to keep up with the new versions of Active Directory, you are going to need somthing similar.
