IMAN is an Acronym for ‘InfoSphere Metadata Asset Manager’.
The IMAM (InfoSphere Metadata Asset Manager) is a thin client application is used Import, export, and manage common metadata assets in Metadata Repository of Infosphere and Information Server (IIS) family of applications.
This is one of those things, which usually comes up during new installs. To access the Infosphere information analyzer thin client there are two approaches. First, is via the Infosphere launchpad page and, the second is to go directly to the information analyzer page. Both URLs are provided in below.
This is one of those things that I get from time to time from customers. Although, it’s not a big deal, it is not as easy to find as you might think. It is included in the IBM documentation, but sometimes running and down in their documentation can be a time in consuming. Once you’ve identified the URL, I recommend that you bookmark it.
Create an Infosphere LaunchPad Shortcut
Also, recommend that you create a shortcut on the desktop, just in case your bookmark disappears.
Purpose of InfoSphere LaunchPad
