IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor tracks the critical events across your B2B and managed file transfer (MFT) infrastructure for improved operations, customer service and B2B governance. It applies rules to alert key audiences when there is a problem with a server, process or transfer. Actionable dashboards are customized for various types of users.

Control Center Monitor provides visibility across all IBM and 3rd party B2B applications, enabling teams to monitor their entire environment from one place. Technical teams can continuously monitor, track, and be alerted on server status, transfer activity and other IT governance, risk and compliance (GRC) items for a view on how well the infrastructure is adhering to defined policy. Dashboards alert them to exceptions and full event tracking tells them exactly what is happening.

IBM Cognos reporting, dashboarding, and analytics is built into Control Center Monitor and simplifies the auditing and documentation required for demonstrating compliance and effective controls. These automated reports save significant manual effort by IT staff for regular audits
