New Functions of the Discovery Generation

More than 80 new Discovery and integrated compliance functions for 100% actionable insights

30% superior ‘return on data’

There are many treasures hidden away in corporate data, such as potentials for optimization – and you can tap into this goldmine by analyzing data across all corporate platforms. However, there are obstacles to be overcome, including the rapid growth of non-z/OS data.

Beta Systems’ new Discovery generation provides leading technology designed to ‘unearth’ these treasures and boost the corporate return on data.

45 functions to meet rising compliance requirements

The upcoming IT security law will force companies operating critical infrastructures to have their technical and other security measures checked by approved auditors at least once every two years. The results, including any safety gaps identified, must be disclosed to the Federal Office for Information Security, BSI.

Discovery offers various functions for implementing efficient, automated compliance monitoring.

Discovery generation application features

  •  Support of new z/OS 2.1 functions (Discovery products only)
  • New BSA (V6.1) with extended features (including zIIP processors for compression tasks)
