IBM Control Center

Acquire control and governance over all transfers of files

When you connect your processes through file transfers, they must be monitored and managed between applications, business units, time zones, locations, customers, and business partners.
IBM Control Center
provides a bundled view of the entire file transfer environment, as well as the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to exceptions and changes in the environment .
IBM Control Center can help you
monitor file transfer processes and react to exceptions before they become problems.
