The ION Desk is the one single place to configure and administer all ION Services by tenant.
It starts by registering the applications (Infor or non-Infor) and configuring which BODs can be handled by which application. This information can be imported or exported. Once registered, business integration models can be created or imported as well. For example, you can model a system-to-system flow (we call it document flow), business monitors, workflows, service flows for SOAP or REST type of integrations, mappings, etc.
When all models are created and validated, they can then be activated centrally. From a deployment perspective, ION Grid allows for the running of multiple hosts with different ION Services available. When ION Desk activates the models, it connects to the ION Grid, which will propagate the configurations across the different nodes and hosts. This is modeled centrally, and execution is distributed.
