Document processing in data centers of financial institutions
Consider a system that allows you to consistently process business documents – such as lists, customer correspondence and other single documents created using banking applications – in your data center. Benefits include greatly improved process efficiency, a better customer experience and reliable compliance with the various requirements set forth by the financial supervisory authority.
Consistent host documents accessible throughout the company
Beta Systems software automatically captures and processes document content and supports the universal, ISO-compliant PDF/A archive input format as well as all common print data streams (PCL, PostScript, AFP). Documents can be individually split up at the content level, bundled with other documents, distributed through various output channels and archived in an audit-compliant manner. A modern web interface offers intuitive access to host-based data sources and connects the solution to the Office world.
- Flexibly create documents and present data in a customer-friendly format by harmonizing print data, XML structures and forms from business-critical applications
- Increased transparency thanks to a consistent data format
- Improved security based on central storing and traceable processing of documents
- Improved customer service by presenting customer-related print output in a consistent and pleasing design (e.g. balance lists, deposit statements, etc.) with Web Enabler
- Convenient output options (e.g. lists as Excel, Word or PDF document) – PDF on-the-fly conversion also allows you to convert partial lists into PDF or view and print them
Potential output management application scenarios include
- Generating account statements
- Displaying remittance notes as part of the ISE large-value check debit process
- Archiving SEPA payment transfer procedures
- e.g. OSPLUS interface (core banking system of Sparkasse savings banks) - Archiving, printing, distribution and online display of internal information
- e.g. EUROSIG interface (core banking system of Unicredit) - Archiving, printing, distribution and online display of internal information
- Automatic reconciliation of CRM data (own applications) and booking data from SAP (C2C)
Scheduling for distributed systems
The need for distributed operations came about in the nineties. Up until then, data centers of large companies, in particular in the financial service business, had been dominated by centralized IBM host systems. When specialist departments started to increasingly request applications that run under Windows, Linux or Unix, the IT landscape became much more diversified.
Control distributed applications from the z/OS host
Beta Systems software empowers you to centrally control a vast range of applications across platform boundaries. This includes launching jobs for individual applications from the z/OS host as well as managing and monitoring comprehensive batch processes. Regain control of the ‘wild mix of applications’ your IT landscape has become over time.
- Single Point of Control for all data production applications – produce distributed jobs with much greater reliability
- Improved recovery capability based on an integrated scheduling, monitoring and archiving concept
- Save software resources by being able to access nearly any corporate server from the host
- Significantly ease the workload of administrators in charge of distributed systems by setting up central monitoring tool for all (central and distributed) processes
- Can be integrated into production control portals – for a convenient overview of job output via a web-based tool
Compliant archiving of SAP and Unix job logs
Large companies generate thousands of batch processing job logs on a daily basis, for instance for the SAP ERP system. Internal policies and legal regulations require the company to store all production-related logs and journals in a long-term archive in audit-compliant format.
Compliant processes thanks to cross-platform log storage
Beta Systems provides solutions for the cross-platform collection and long-term archiving of job logs. The automatic, standardized procedure delivers consistent traceability of corporate processes and provides proof of compliance with all relevant regulations. This also satisfies one of the key requirements for obtaining a compliance seal of approval.
