Customer Benefits at a Glance

Single point of information. All relevant monitoring and audit data available from a central location.

Discovery products feature a significantly expanded function range

The new basic architecture (BSA) of the Discovery product generation lays the foundation for making new functions such as, for instance, improved compression, available across all products. The individual Beta products, Beta 91 Discovery, Beta 92 Discovery, Beta 93 Discovery and Beta 88 Discovery, offer various new specific functions and function extensions. Discovery already supports several functions of the new z/OS 2.1 generation from IBM, and new functions will be added to the list on an ongoing basis.  

In contrast to previous product generations, Discovery offers a Single Point of Information that processes all information relevant for monitoring and auditing the z/OS and non-z/OS landscapes. The new Beta Log Formatter processes SMF records, logs and other data sources. The resulting reports can be generated as XML, CSV or HTML files. Self-monitoring findings for Discovery products are documented by means of predefined, Sysplex-capable standard reports.

Monitoring of the z/OS and RACF system configurations is implemented according to the BSI list of basic security measures and the ISO 2700X security standard

Improved usability

The new Beta Web Enabler 2.1 provides a fully redesigned user interface built to satisfy the latest standards. 

Improved multi-platform capability

The integrated agent network is multi-platform capable and thus supports consistent job, document and log processing. In combination with a simplified license environment, this allows for processing non-z/OS platform workloads. You benefit from improved system utilization and reduced load spikes. 

The Discovery generation offers numerous standardized expansion packages, e.g. transaction volume for non-z/OS workload, SAP packages or integration into transaction environments.

Integrated compliance checks

The Discovery product generation comprises IT basic protection verification for z/OS as prescribed by law and significantly improved self-monitoring of Discovery tools (analysis and reporting) under z/OS. This includes real-time access monitoring and harmonized expansion packages such as Data Privacy for Beta 88 Discovery or IT basic protection for Beta 89 Discovery.

Standardized service packages

Beta Systems offers standardized service packages to simplify and speed up the implementation of Discovery products, IT basic protection or the agent network.
