For over forty years, Systemware has played an important role in the digital journey from document management to enterprise content management (ECM), and today – as an industry leading content services provider (ECS).
In the early years, as the need for content management spread throughout enterprises, Systemware identified important customer requirements that extended beyond the scope of our original document management solution, JHS (Job History System) – the first of its kind available on the market to allow visibility, management, and reporting for mainframe job SYSOUT and SYSLOGs. JHS served as the foundation for the development of Xptr.
Xptr was introduced by Systemware in 1988. Xptr was our first IBM z/OS solution to manage enterprise mainframe content, known today as Content Server. Xptr redefined enterprise report and output management for the mainframe and was created to address changing market dynamics and expand system capabilities for the increasing needs of our customers. Before Xptr, reports were generated, printed, and manually distributed. The increased demand for more timely, accurate, and secure information was met – and exceeded, with Xptr.
Xptr can be deployed natively on the mainframe in the IBM zSystems environment or on distributed systems such as Windows and Linux.
