Introduction

Welcome to Sentinel® EMS™. Sentinel EMS is a powerful role-based application designed to manage the business activities required to implement and maintain Sentinel LDK in your organization.

Sentinel EMS streamlines the major work flows in the licensing life cycle of a protected software application, from the moment it is developed, through its packaging, marketing, selling, and order taking, to its distribution and upgrading.

Sentinel LDK separates the software protection process (implemented with Sentinel Licensing API or Sentinel LDK Envelope) from the licensing and production processes (implemented with Sentinel EMS), enabling you to modify your company’s licensing strategy as necessary when circumstances change, and to implement these changes quickly and efficiently.

This guide is designed to help you configure Sentinel EMS for the specific requirements typical to your organization.
