Expeditor Client environment.
Managing using another management system
The client platform provides two models of platform and application management: using the Enterprise Management Agent and the Client Management server, and using the Portal Server to control application layout and provisioning of the applications to the client. If you choose not to use these capabilities, you can use another management system to manage the client platform.
