IT Salary Tracker: NetWare professionals

NetWare professionals, see how much demand there is for your skills, and find out what you can command for salaries and contract rates.

Novell Inc.'s March 2000 update, from NetWare 5.0 to 5.1, added a number of interesting new features to an already established networking environment. Notable among the new bells and whistles are IBM's WebSphere 3.0, Oracle 8i, Windows 2000 compatibility, and the NetWare Management Portal (allowing server administration through a browser). Added to existing NetWare features such as Zero Effort Networking (ZENWorks), storage-management services, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol support, the upgrade to NetWare 5.1 will likely prompt a continued demand for NetWare's set of server applications--and for the IT professionals who know how to manage them.
