OVERVIEW

As organizations change and grow, administering end user access to business applications can become complex and time consuming. The company's IT function will often become a bottleneck, unable to process requests efficiently and expediently.

CENTRAL® for iMenu v100 offers a simpler approach that allows greater levels of security and control to be gained with less administrative effort. User access administration can be devolved to non-technical personnel, while end users benefit from a simple and consistent interface for accessing a variety of different IBM i business applications.

With its rich array of advanced features, CENTRAL® for iMenu allows you to easily manage complex requirements involving multiple systems, divisions, locations, and multi-language menus.  Menu administration can be centralized or decentralized, and built-in audit support is provided to make the task of regulatory compliance simple and easy.

KEY FEATURES

  • Simplified User Setup
    Rapidly set up new users with menu options, print queues, and an initial library list - everything that is needed to start using the IBM i.
  • Devolved Administration
    Share and devolve responsibility for administering a specific set of options and menus to one or many non-technical administrators.
  • Increase Administrator Productivity 
    Copy and move entire divisions; options or option groups; or single users or sub-menus to other CENTRAL® for iMenu instances running on your corporate network.
  • Multiple Environments
    Easily create and test menus, sub-menus, and options in separate areas before making them available to users.
  • Customize Menu Processing
    Programmatically control your environmental requirements, where necessary, using flexible Exit programs. 
  • Control Access To Your Systems
    Limit user access to include only what is needed. Use built-in scheduling to restrict option availability to set days or times.
  • Lock Out Divisions
    Gain greater control of your systems using restricted functions that enable administrators to lock-out divisions and set up separate libraries and options for each.
  • Manage Packaged Application Menus
    Standardize the management of both in-house and packaged software menus, without making users access in-house options through packaged application menus.
  • Improve Job Control
    Interactively respond to problems, obtain a list of active users at a moment's notice for unscheduled shutdowns, or simply monitor the workflow of a new employee.
  • One-Time User Sign-On & Pass Through
    Allow your users to sign on to one IBM i server and seamlessly access applications on any other IBM i on your network.
  • Prevent Suspension From Sensitive Options
    Avoid unwanted suspension of individual options by preventing users from exiting before task completion.
  • Prevent Sign-Off From Sensitive Options
    Condition options to prevent users from signing off while that option is suspended and active.
