Learning about Informix and the Open Admin Tool (OAT)

Presented by Tom Beebe on February 11, 2014


The Open Admin Tool (OAT) is one of the most exciting and least talked about new features for Informix in the past few years. It is an open platform to manage your Informix instances through a convenient web interface. In this talk we will be breaking down how to get up and running with OAT and covering many of the basic tasks you can perform in it. Since version 11 was released many people have migrated up to it, however most of them have either not gotten OAT up at all or looked at it briefly and put it back down. Listen to the webcast and we will tell you why you want to go to the latest release of OAT and why you should be using it every day. Some of the highlights: *Get step by step instructions to getting it running on a variety of operating systems *Learn about monitoring replicated environments using your web browser *See different ways to get very easy to read visual guides to the health of your database *Learn how to safely give your Jr DBA the ability to add new space without having to worry every time he does *See how to browse your database without needing to use dbaccess or SQL *Find out how to easily get reports that you can give to management showing how much Informix is racing along
