About Turtle

The Turtle Partnership deliver business value to you in the dynamic fields of Social Collaboration and Communications.

We specialise in the design, development and integration of social collaboration communication products, including both security and single sign on aspects. We are committed to delivering successful creative, cost-effective and innovative solutions to meet your needs.

Turtle have been working with IBM mail and collaborative technologies since 1996 and we bring a great depth of experience in getting the most value and best business outcomes for our customers.

Our technical expertise is focused around complex IBM products and their integration with other technologies.  This includes IBM WebSphere, IBM Connections, IBM Sametime, IBM Quickr and IBM Domino as well as system integration and such supporting products as IBM Traveler, DB2 server, Tivoli Directory Integrator, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Lync Server.  We also perform security audits and single sign on projects using both Kerberos and SAML technologies for customers.

We further have hands-on experience in developing ‘hybrid’ Cloud solutions. We can work with you to connect and integrate Cloud and on-premises to deliver a secure integrated environment so that you get the most value from your past and current investments.

Turtle’s technical team is highly skilled and we believe in sharing our design, development and support experience with the wider community. We have been commissioned to provide technical articles to the industry press, and speak at major technical events such as IBM ConnectED, IBM Connect, Lotusphere, IBM Connect(ED),  Engage BE, View Admin, AdminCamp, ICON UK, NLUG and DNUG.  We have helped author IBM documentation and exams and our own publicly available documentation such as the Connections101.net site and our own technical blog at http://turtleblog.info.

In recognition of our work with customers and contribution to the wider community, two of our Directors, Gabriella Davis and Mike Smith have been officially recognised as one of a select few IBM Champions for Collaboration.

We were also very pleased that Gabriella Davis was presented with an IBM Champion Lifetime Achievement Award at Connect 2016 for her long-standing work with the community.
