Beta 91 Data Quality Management is a solution for automatic data quality assurance on the z/OS platform. It greatly reduces the number of erroneous transactions, integrates deeply with your SAP processes and automatically checks if data is correct.
A major global insurance company has 20,000 quality assurance procedures in place in order to meet the required standards regarding quality and security for all automated mainframe-driven processes.
Internal compliance guidelines as well as legal regulations such as SOX, PCI/DSS or BASEL for the financial sector require companies to subject their data to a consistent and comprehensive quality assurance process. Failure to perform these checks and to painstakingly compare target and actual data can result in serious issues, ranging from production delays to claims for damages – which also put a blemish on the company’s reputation.
What makes data quality assurance in the data center so difficult is the recent shift toward processing company procedures on heterogeneous operating systems such as Unix, Linux and Windows. Given this backdrop, companies need a tool that allows them to monitor data across the entire company and all distributed system platforms from the central host.
Beta 91 Data Quality Management delivers precisely this functionality and supports the structured and convenient definition of automatic checking routines. In order to reconcile jobs in SAP and distributed server landscapes, Beta 91 Data Quality Management closely integrates with the existing IBM workload scheduler environment. This makes it possible to transfer information from SAP to the host for comparison against relevant target values. This open design is a key strength of our software, as it allows for checking the data quality both on the mainframe as well as in distributed server landscapes. And the latter – the SAP world – is where the majority of IFC, and thus accounting-related, jobs are being generated.
Canada’s largest bank implemented Beta 91 Data Quality Management to prevent erroneous postings. As an added benefit, the bank was able to significantly accelerate automatic batch processing.
Beta 91 Data Quality Management offers a standardized method that enables customers to automatically verify all data and logs, regardless of whether they are being processed centrally under z/OS or on distributed platforms. The product thus delivers a single point of control.
The new ‘HASH command’ function helps you avoid redundant data processing. Moreover, the hash key ensures the integrity of transferred files.
Rapidly detect errors throughout all applications. This puts you in a position to resolve them right away, thus preventing errors from propagating to downstream systems.
Whenever target and actual values deviate, this can cause production to come to a standstill. Prevent such downtimes from occurring to ensure on-time production.
Perform data reconciliation in your production systems as well as in your development environments down to the very lowest level. As a result, your software releases will be operating extremely reliably now and in the future.
Thanks to its intelligent agent network, Enterprise Job Manager upgrades existing z/OS mainframe schedulers by adding the option of smoothly providing workload management for distributed systems & applications (under Linux, Unix, Windows, System i, SAP), including monitored data transfers.
SmartJCL helps to improve the workload management quality by checking and correcting the syntax of JCL job scripts. Integrated interfaces for IBM Workload Scheduler and DB2 simplify your daily work, as do simulation and reformatting functions and a REXX interface.
