Abstract

The system administration has been waiting for a long time for procedures and mechanism for more control over process activities within complex application landscapes. New challenges come up due to the use of linked up software applications to implement business scenarios. Numerous business processes exchange data across complex application landscapes, for that they use various applications, retrieve and store data. The underlying technology has to provide a stable environment maintaining diverse software, databases and operating system components. The challenge is to keep the distributed application environment under control at any given time. This paper describes a steering mechanism to control complex application landscapes, in order to support system administration in their daily business. , PAC is an approach to get activities under central control. PAC is the next reasonable step to gaining more transparency and visibility to improving system maintenance of Cloud Computing environments.
