installed or the features that you want to enable. For additional
setup steps, see the documentation for your specific product modules.
Configuring IBM InfoSphere Information Server
After you install the product, you must configure connections to your application server and databases, enable security, and configure other products in the suite. Completing these configuration tasks ensures that your installation of InfoSphere Information Server is set up to run optimally with minimal downtime.
