The use of Beta Symphony applications enables direct and indirect cost
savings in IT operations. The user interfaces developed in
collaboration with client companies allow users and IT operating teams
to perform tasks faster and easier. New and optimized elements of the
Beta Systems architecture in conjunction with the new versions of z/OS
allow encryption and data transfer processes to be performed with up
to 15% less CPU consumption. A new health checker with intelligent,
automated checks relieves the operating team and the application gives
feedback if problems have been identified. In this way, potential
problems in production operations can be avoided from the outset.

New functions for archiving

Beta Systems also invested in the modernization of the technologies used
and in the optimization of the Beta Systems Architecture (BSA) by a modern
JavaBSA. The latest z/OS operating system versions and IBM Z
hardware support Symphony as well as current operating systems and
modern web application servers including IBM Websphere Liberty. All
products of Beta Symphony support the Internet Protocol Version 6. New
functions for archiving simplify the scope of compliance requirements: A
new key date archiving now makes it possible to calculate the archive
retention time with an exactly defined start date. The reduction of
the archive expiry date allows the expiry date for archived lists and
documents to be brought forward.

The Symphony product generation offers interactive, self-explanatory,
attractively designed user interfaces that facilitate the work
objectives of the users. They increase comprehensibility and simplify
access to important and frequently used functions. Complexity is reduced
and readability and clarity are optimized. This makes working with the
products faster and easier, and customers save working time directly.
