Managing application specific configuration is mostly done within an application page (aka layouts page). Navigating to these pages is done via custom actions, which adds links to for example the Site Settings page. The challenge starts when the number of application pages grows. Do you keep adding them to the Site Settings page? Do you show them on all Site Settings pages in the web application of every web?

What you need is a centralized administration, like the Central Administration, controlling your application configuration. The Central Administration in SharePoint has two sorts of pages. The homepage (default.aspx) providing an overview and pages like Application Management showing a collection of links related to Application Management.

It’s easy to build your own custom administration site. See images below:
