As a customer I have a few different instances of IIS Servers running in Development, Test and Production. We often use the IP or hostname in the URL for Launchpad, but these names are generic and not informative. Users often get confused as to which environment they are accessing. The idea is to simply customize the launchpad via a simple variable so that the "Welcome to IBM InfoSphere Information Server" to add another custom field - e.g. "UAT Server 11.5 Project Atlas" or "DEV Server 11.7 Apple"
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All users that run multiple servers.|
|Client Name||FirstCaribbean International Bank|
How should it work?
Create a parameter in an admin console or simply an HTML or XML file that can be customized.
