Discovery is the sixth generation of the highly successful Beta Systems product suite for IBM Z, which has become a de facto standard in countless data centers.
The suite comprises products for output management, document archiving and provisioning, workload automation, production data quality assurance, log data management and sophisticated access management using RACF.
Moreover, a smart agent network for integrating distributed systems and web-based user interfaces ensure that the Discovery Suite delivers a wide range of powerful functions that drive modern, integrated data center operations.
Thanks to its intelligent agent network, Enterprise Job Manager upgrades existing z/OS mainframe schedulers by adding the option of smoothly extending workload management to distributed systems & applications (under Linux, Unix, Windows, System i, SAP), including monitored data transfers.
Enterprise Control Center provides a central tool for managing automatic IT processes. Use the fully graphical user interface and web services to configure programs and interactively control distributed workloads via the intelligent agent network of the Beta 92 Enterprise Job Manager.
Beta 92 Log Management enables you to reliably store, archive and provision vast volumes of log data or job output from workload 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 91 Data Quality Management delivers functions for the code-based verification of IT process data (log data, hit lists). When combined with workload automation solutions, this tool allows you to improve the quality of critical processes and individual process steps. And thanks to the intelligent agent network, the solution supports a vast range of platforms, from z/OS and Linux/Unix through to Windows, System i or SAP.
_beta access admin is a comprehensive tool for managing z/OS RACF databases and access rights. It provides assistance with all administrative tasks and thus helps to reduce human errors or the abuse of RACF authorizations by implementing a special security concept. In addition, the tool offers extensive options for process automation and reporting.
_beta access admin replaces Beta 88 Administrator.
_beta access easy reduces the workload of RACF administrators by introducing the option of delegating standard tasks to helpdesk or specialist department staff. Routine tasks such as resetting passwords can be performed using a web-based interface based on the dual control principle for maximum protection.
_beta access easy replaces Beta 88 Web Helpdesk.
_beta access audit provides options that greatly facilitate the task of monitoring RACF and key z/OS settings. It also enables users to ‘freeze’ RACF data in generations that can then be handed over to auditors for inspection. By using a predefined security policy covering the managed data pool, which also includes explanatory texts on individual audit items, even auditors with little experience can perform high-quality audits.
_beta access audit replaces Beta 88 Auditor.
Meeting compliance provisions is made simple with Beta 96 Discovery Compliance Auditor. Create meaningful audit reports for RACF compliance monitoring based on legal regulation (ISO 27000, IT basic protection manual).
_beta access report allows to analyze SMF data, RACF and z/OS environment settings to verify security breaches and ensure that actual RACF settings properly protect your system.
_beta access report replaces Beta 88 Report Generator.
_beta smf enables you to analyze and process SMF data. SMF data can be made available in various formats (CSV, XML) for further processing under z/OS or outside the mainframe.
_beta smf replaces Beta Log Formatter.
_beta access analyze is a convenient, Windows-based application that simplifies analyses and reporting on RACF authorization structures as well as auditing/checking these. This provides both internal and external users with a complete view of existing authorizations without the need to directly access z/OS.
_beta access analyze replaces Beta 88 Resource Drill-Down Facility (RDF).
_beta access monitor is an automated real-time monitoring system for authorization management in z/OS. It monitors all RACF activities and automatically escalates security-related events to the respective person in charge. Alerts can be issued via various channels (e-mail, z/OS console, TSO send…).
_beta access monitor replaces Beta 89 Monitor.
