Description
Bottom rule

Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, V10.1 is optimized for efficiently storing and managing large volumes of static content, including correspondence that has been electronically sent or posted to clients, and reports that are used to conduct business activity or convey business performance. It provides quick, efficient access to critical documents and helps organizations obtain the following benefits.

Move beyond traditional enterprise report management

Content Manager OnDemand can help organizations move beyond traditional enterprise report management solutions by providing high-volume capture of computer output, and flexible search and retrieval options with multiple solutions for web browsers and desktop environments.

Content Manager OnDemand incorporates automated and optimized storage management and can serve as a platform for implementing electronic bill presentment and payment solutions. In addition to excellent scalability and performance, it provides extensive platform support, including IBM AIX®, IBM i, IBM z™/OS, Microsoft™ Windows™, Linux™, and Linux for IBM System z®. With IBM Content Manager OnDemand on Cloud, customers can choose to deploy on cloud as well. In addition, hybrid deployments are now possible whereby custom solutions built for Content Manager OnDemand such as client-facing portals or eStatement Presentment Solutions can run on customer premises and Content Manager OnDemand can run on cloud.

Make content available to those who need it, when they need it

Content Manager OnDemand Web Enablement Toolkit helps the user access data through an industry-standard web browser. Users can search through archived folders and applications, and select documents or sections of reports for browser viewing. The toolkit can also run on a web server and uses standard Content Manager OnDemand interfaces for accessing data stored on a Content Manager OnDemand server.

Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS requires Object and Library server licenses, plus IBM Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms user licenses, which also provides license to IBM Content Navigator. IBM Content Navigator is designed to be easy to use and provides a highly interactive, customizable, and rapidly deployable web platform that enables users to access, manage, and work with enterprise content directly from most devices, including smartphones and tablets. Users can retrieve reports and statements, check images, and get other computer-generated output with just a few clicks. Well suited for both local and remote users, this intuitive client application offers many features, including:

  • Customizable interfaces (or skins)
  • Search across multiple repositories (Content Manager OnDemand, Content Manager, FileNet® Content Manager)
  • Multiple document window views from a single viewer framework
  • Browse, search, and work features for portal environments
  • Capability to print search result lists from the server

Locate content quickly and efficiently

Content Manager OnDemand enables employees and customers to access and use content quickly and efficiently. It quickly transforms and displays documents on the screen with the same fidelity as if they were printed. Search and navigation features enable users to quickly retrieve information and easily maneuver within multipage documents.

Content Manager OnDemand works with commercially available off-the-shelf transform software to provide content transformation and accessibility capabilities so that you can establish the necessary access for everyone along your value chain. For example, you can transform an IBM Advanced Function Presentation data stream into Adobe™ PDF for general distribution and viewing. You can preserve the document's original integrity while quickly and efficiently providing information to the parties who need it in a format that they want.

The optional Content Manager OnDemand Distribution Facility (ODF) feature enables users to distribute groups of reports to multiple users. Through the included graphical interface, users can monitor tasks such as working with report bundles and system statistics.

Content Manager OnDemand provides various indexers to extract and index content of different data types.

  • The Generic indexer can be used to specify index data for any type of input file that you want to store in the system.
  • AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility can be used for Advanced Function Printing (AFP) data and line data. AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility is a powerful tool for indexing the print data streams of IBM z/OS application programs, unformatted ASCII data, and ASCII data containing printer control characters that are generated on UNIX™ or Microsoft Windows workstations. AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility indexes reports based on the organization of the data in the report. You can optionally convert line data print streams into AFP data.
  • The optional PDF indexer feature can be used to extract index data and create PDF resource files for Adobe PDF files that you want to store in Content Manager OnDemand.

    Note: PDF indexer does not run natively on the z/OS platform. It needs to be deployed on one of the supported multiplatforms operating systems such as AIX, Linux, or Microsoft Windows. It can be configured to work with Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, V10.1.

  • XML indexing provides the capability to index and load XML documents into the Content Manager OnDemand repository. This capability helps improve scalability by potentially reducing the storage costs of XML indexes and supporting faster indexing of large XML data workloads. XML documents can also be easily reformatted to meet accessibility needs.
  • The IBM OS/390 indexer, previously available only on z/OS and AIX platforms, is a new 64-bit C/C++ application for z/OS that supports existing user-exits written in COBOL. OS/390 indexer is now available on all platforms. It can be used to capture any data type. Native support exists for line data and AFP data. Other data types, such as PDF and TIFF images, can be captured by using the Anystore Exit. This provides a method to capture documents of most types and sizes (including those greater than 2 GB) into Content Manager OnDemand.

Full-Text Search is an optional feature for quickly and efficiently storing and retrieving content that is not easily identified by regular indexes. Full-Text Search automatically creates an optimal index of all words within a document, and helps enable rapid search and retrieval against that index. This feature works with Content Navigator and customer-written applications.

Note: Use of Full-Text Search requires a Full-Text Search server to be deployed on one of the supported multiplatforms operating systems such as AIX, Linux, or Microsoft Windows. The Full-Text Search server does not run natively on z/OS platform, but can be configured to work with Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, V10.1. Comprehensive search capabilities provide crucial access to text or other unstructured data, which often makes up the bulk of enterprise data.

Securely store content

The security of IT infrastructure is paramount, making it critical to safeguard data stored in Content Manager OnDemand from unauthorized access. Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, V10.1 includes additional measures to improve security of content. Any content being stored can be automatically encrypted in storage, regardless of the type of storage management software that is being used. Content Manager OnDemand uses AES 256 encryption to encrypt the content. Beyond encryption of content, it is possible to encrypt the metadata stored in DB2® database server by using DB2 native encryption facility.

Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, V10.1 also stores a digital hash of each document. Digital hash is a 256-bit signature of a document and can be used to verify that a retrieved document has not been altered or tampered with.

Leverage federated record management and enhanced document retention capabilities

Federated records management is an optional Content Manager OnDemand capability requiring a separate license of IBM Enterprise Records software. With this option, users can manage the lifecycle of various types of documents that need to be retained for compliance with regulatory requirements. Content Manager OnDemand leverages IBM Enterprise Records software to help you transform volumes of report-oriented data into federated records. You can categorize checks, statements, invoices, and reports as records and manage them efficiently from within Enterprise Records software. This process helps streamline records and compliance management, and can offer several potential benefits:

  • Reduce risk exposure. By bringing sensitive records-class content under the control of a single records management engine, your organization can manage its archival and retention requirements, which potentially helps lower your exposure to risk.
  • Lower discovery and litigation costs. Records administrators can perform a single search across multiple systems, including Content Manager OnDemand, and then identify relevant records and hold or suspend normal disposition schedules until litigation is resolved.
  • Lower records administration costs. You can streamline the process of managing records stored in Content Manager OnDemand and other systems from a single records administrator console that provides a centralized file plan along with reporting, hold, suspension, audit, and disposition capabilities.

Enhanced Retention Management is an optional Content Manager OnDemand feature for managing the lifecycle of various types of documents that are not necessarily needed for compliance with regulatory requirements, but have business value and need to be retained for a definite period. Enhanced Retention Management helps provide a simplified mechanism to control the lifecycle of the content and the capability to lock down individual documents within a report to prevent expiration at the document level.

You may use both federated records management and Enhanced Retention Management. Federated records management is used for content to be retained for compliance with regulatory requirements and provides auditability and legal hold capabilities. Enhanced Retention Management helps you manage retention of content that is needed by businesses and also needs to be under retention control, but without the overhead of compliance with regulatory requirements.

Help improve productivity and reduce costs

Paper-based record keeping can quickly become inefficient. Consider an organization that mails bills to its customers and then has its staff file hard copies in traditional filing cabinets. As the organization grows, it might need several rooms to house these paper-based records. When a question or problem arises, someone must search for a hard copy of the bill or letter of complaint through hundreds, possibly even thousands, of client billing records; a process that could take days, depending on the size of the customer base.

Content Manager OnDemand helps you overcome these issues by helping to enable fast, indexed access to transactions and reports. Distributing data electronically can drastically reduce the time to find the pertinent information, possibly from days to minutes. You can integrate Content Manager OnDemand with analytics and report-mining tools to learn more about your business, thereby increasing the value of the archived content over time. You can also help control the costs associated with printing documents, maintaining a staff to manage the paper load, and holding office and storage space for physical records.

Help improve customer service

Paper-based processes can also impair relationships with customers. Without a reliable web presence, an organization must process a higher volume in its call center, often because its customers cannot find what they are looking for, even if it is available online. When a customer calls to ask questions or report problems, customer service representatives are unable to handle requests in real time because they cannot immediately access the paper bill to which the customer is referring. Poor access to information leads to additional customer callbacks and greatly diminishes the organization's ability to serve its customers, which can significantly affect the bottom line.

Content Manager OnDemand helps organizations develop an enterprise report management system that delivers self-service access to computer-generated bills, statements, invoices, and other documents. Customer service representatives can help resolve customer billing inquiries about invoices and statements during the initial call, helping to reduce the number of callbacks. Self-service capabilities and online access to account information help enable customers to answer their own questions, reducing call-center volume and potentially driving down customer service costs.

Integrating the Content Manager OnDemand solution with an analytics solution can help you better understand the needs of your customers and deliver content that is relevant to each user. Datawatch Report Mining Server, a separately licensed product, can be used with Content Manager OnDemand to give users access to the intelligence locked away inside stored reports and documents. It transforms static documents into live data that can be filtered, sorted, and combined with other content to help put answers at your fingertips.

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information about known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, see the IBM Software Support Handbook.

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program support

Subscription and Support includes telephone assistance, as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect. You will be notified of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

  • The design and development of applications
  • Your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment
  • Failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
