About Me

My name is Robert Farstad, lives and works in Norway. I have 1 wife and 2 kids.

My track-record career-wise has lead me into IBM Collaboration Solutions world, which now is a past chapter. Not entirely, but I have started working for Sopra Steria in Oslo, Norway, a totally new challenge!

After being a Domino Admin for many years, I got hired by IBM Norway as a IT Specialist on the ISSL/ISC team. After I left IBM in 2012, I first visited one Business Partner (www.crayon.no) and then I came to Item Consulting (www.item.no), whom I left in August 2018 to join Sopra Steria as a Senior Infrastructure Engineer.

IBM products I've worked on are such as IBM Connections + IBM Docs, IBM Sametime, TDS/SDS, TDI/SDI, IBM Cloud migrations, and lately IBM WebSphere Liberty and  IBM BigFix + ILMT.

I also have a lot of experience with Websphere Portal, Quickr for Websphere Portal, Domino Quickr, Traveler etc. And of course, working with the IBM Products, I got to learn my way around Windows, Linux, Unix and a little bit of AS400.
And I´ve gone Mac, and I´ll never go back.

I believe I was the first one in Norway to install IBM Connections. This was version 2.0.

I´m on twitter as @robertfarstad

In 2018 I was selected to become an IBM ICS Champion!

As far as hobbies goes, I love playing golf, volleyball, football/soccer, playing my guitar and yelling into a microphone.
