AXIS EnterpriseLink for IT Support Personnel

One place to find all components of your work

AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard is a starting point for your work with great tools that provide you with control over system resources and user groups management.

Portal to user group and work flow management

EnterpriseLink user group management area provides control over users' access to work areas and actions that the members of the group are required to perform. Custom permissions can be assigned to work areas, report libraries, jobs and other components of the system to help segregate duties and allow access to necessary tools for corresponding groups of users.

Single point access to all greattools AXIS EnterpriseLink offers

Application modes presented on the dashboard provide you with direct access to a variety of tools you are allowed to implement based on the role(s) assigned to your user group.

Customizable set of functional areas

You can minimize a number of dashboard components by temporarily hiding application modes you currently do not intend to use.

Integration with Windows Active Directory

Security is at the core of the system. Integration with Windows Active Directory ensures users access only to those areas that are designated for their work.

Secure single point sign-on and user authentication

AXIS EnterpriseLink provides a single sign-on procedure that issecure and scalable. Users authenticated in Windows are mapped to the user role in EnterpriseLink according to their membership in Active Directory groups. Once logged in, they are provided with corresponding levels of access to system resources and different areas of functionality consistently across all EnterpriseLink servers in your environment.

Access groups feature for further improved security

You can find sample datasets on a selected AXIS version screen and copy them to your work area folder. A direct link brings you to a list of new features and changes introduced in the selected version.

Unified control over all EnterpriseLink settings

You can specify directories for work areas, assign paths for backup and version control and temporary file locations - all configured in one place. AXIS versions deployment, license key and GridLink job queues management, are all performed via the simple interface that guides you through the required steps.

Centrally managed data backup locations with easy retrieval

Smart backup mechanism enables automatic saving of all user backups in the designated locations. As a result, further archiving of the backed up data is simplified. Any backup file can be easily retrieved by using references from the backup history. Storage folder can be moved to different hardware easily without affecting users.

Easy disk space maintenance and work areas relocation

Disk usage and free disk space levels can be monitored across the entire EnterpriseLink environment via a snapshot tool that queries and shows all work areas, back up directories and other paths defined in the system, in one report. You get an early indication when additional space may be required and can take timely action for hardware upgrades or replacement. Work areas and backup repositories can be easily moved to the device with more disk space without requiring users to retarget all their input and output references in their models or production jobs.

Single point remote deployment of AXIS versions for the cluster of computers

AXIS EnterpriseLink provides a single point of remote deployment of AXIS versions. There is no need for multiple installations of the sameversion. Once installed in the shared server directory, a version isavailable for assigning to user groups intending to work with it.

Control access to AXIS versions

User group management area allows you to control access to thespecific AXIS versions.

Unified license key management

Centralized license key management eliminates the complexity of dealing with individual user licensing. Software key deployed in EnterpriseLink automatically enables all installed AXIS versions for licensed users registered in the system. Software license keys associated with the AXIS user's domain account allow users who work on multiple machines to easily move between machines in the same Active Directory (AD) domain (and with the same username), without registering the individual machine with our licensing system.

Self-service software key management portal

Our key portal allows key administrators to quickly view the status of their company's AXIS keys, assign or revoke license keys, and monitor licensing activity (logs) and run reports.

Scripted jobs to perform sequences of calculations or processes

AXIS users have already benefited from the ability to write their own AXIS Script (similar to Visual Basic for Applications - VBA) in a System Formula. EnterpriseLink provides a central place to create and execute scripts right from the user dashboard. These jobs are especially suited for production processes but can also be written by ITsupport to perform various service tasks such as backing up datasets or converting datasets tonewer versions of AXIS. We also introduced a new type of EnterpriseLink Job "EnterpriseLink Script". Unlike an "AXIS Script" type job that runs in AXIS, the EnterpriseLink Script job runs on EnterpriseLink allowing for native access to model dataset management functionality and Version Control capabilities, while providing functions to run AXIS jobs locally on the EnterpriseLink server or submit jobs to queues in AXIS GridLink on-premise or cloud based farms.

Job Version Control

Check your job into an EnterpriseLink Version Control Project and maintain the revision history for each job. Check out jobs for editing or get a copy of any version of the job for a testing or production run.

Automated runs without manual intervention

Use of Global Parameters provides the ability to run jobs without having to open datasets or job scripts, as well to perform fully automated runs via the built-in job scheduler. You can control which users can edit the job script, its parameters or job schedule.

Sample Jobs Library

Review Sample Jobs scripts to analyze the most often used functions/commands for maintenance and production runs. Copy the sample script into a new job and edit it to use with your datasets and/or enhance it with the functions specific for your needs.

Integration with multiple AXIS GridLink farms

Configure all GridLink job queues from one or multiple farms in the EnterpriseLink settings and assign them to the user groups. All versions of AXIS that your users are working with are automatically configured with optimal parameters for access to the assigned queues so that the users can immediately start submitting jobs.

Submit jobs to a GridLink queue or run locally

AXIS EnterpriseLink controls user group access to AXIS GridLink farms. Once a user group is granted a right to use the GridLink queue(s), users can choose to submit their batch to the GridLink farm queue or run it on one of the EnterpriseLink servers. Scripted service jobs can also be run on GridLink or performed locally.

Monitor jobs right fromthe AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard

Monitor active jobs running on EnterpriseLink servers or in any of your GridLink job queues right from the dashboard and viewthe completed jobs list and their batch logs.

Job Scheduling mechanism

EnterpriseLink introduces an easy-to-use interface for scheduling automated runs. You can set a date and time for job execution, establish the frequency to run with or specify a run code for the Job to be triggered by an external application; and select the AXIS version and the computer on which the job will run.

Job monitoring and history

You can monitor the status and progress of running jobs, including jobs running on GridLink and review the history of completed jobs and their batch logs righton the AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard.

Connect to EnterpriseLink's own SQL Server database

Query various internal configuration tables, logs, user and object lists to produce numerous administrative reports.

Utilize GridLink capacity on-demand

Easily submit AXIS batch jobs to our GridLink Cloud for processing in our GridLink farm. Pay only for the core-hours used to run your jobs.

Full-time GridLink Hosting

Your GridLink farm with guaranteed number of processor cores and job queues can be fully hosted and managed in our Cloud environment. Accessible by your users 24/7/365 to run unlimited number of jobs for a fixed monthly service fee.

Secure, reliable and convenient

Our Cloud Services are built with security in mind; with fundamental architectural requirements such as full separation of data and access permissions, and use of industry standard encryption and secure transfer protocols and authentication technologies. Easy-to-use web based portal is provided to monitor running jobs, review run information and batch logs and access calculated AXIS results.
