CONTAINER APPLICATION

The Container Application is a single portal that provides access to multiple applications from one place using single sign-on. It provides unified look and feel as application users can switch between apps seamlessly; experience working in one application whereas internally there are multiple apps developed by different vendors. Any web application either Native or Non-native can be easily integrated in the Container App. Applications developed using Implementation Guidelines are considered as native applications. These applications are opened in the container area when their menus are clicked. Container App also supports non-native applications (which do not follow implementation guidelines) and these applications are opened in separate browser. The Centralized Access Control enables easy administration of native applications by providing roles and rights management at one place.
