_beta log|z
z/OS Log Management
(Beta 92)

Reliable and secure IT production driven by log data

_beta log|z enables you to reliably store, archive and provision vast volumes of log data or job output from workload management.

_beta log|z replaces Beta 92 Log Management.

The intelligent agent network performs mainframe job log data archiving tasks and additionally offers functions for collecting log data generated on any distributed platform in a company-wide log archive (e.g. Linux, Unix, Windows, System i, SAP system output).

_beta log|z reduces the load on scheduling systems, facilitates transparent audits and helps you reduce the cost of automating SAP processes.

_beta log|z Helps You Gain Better Control of Your IT Production

  • Log management and IT security: Check and archive your job and process logs – across all platforms. Access job logs in the long-term archive or provide software developers with direct access to log data.
  • Mainframe power: Implement a failsafe production environment that features integrated XCF technology.
  • Scalable and cost-efficient IT production: Reduce the z/OS workload by up to 25% by utilizing zIIP processors.
  • Big data: Facilitate big data analyses by introducing a system that automatically forwards application and security logs. Enable ad-hoc reporting on SMF logs.
  • Workload automation & job scheduling: Utilize the built-in _beta job|z (formerly Beta 92 EJM) to automate distributed applications and servers. Integrate log data originating from mainframe schedulers such as Control-M.
  • DC accounting: Quantify data center services down to the last byte and centrally manage your IT batch job output.

The Log Management solution from Beta Systems empowers us to meet the entire range of IT governance, risk and compliance regulations that apply to Italian banks.
