"Macro 4, a leading independent developer of information delivery and systems management solutions, has announced support for Linux on the new S/390 eServer ZSeries for its SAP certified output management solution. By running Macro 4's solution with SAP and Linux on the IBM platform, users can take advantage of the space, energy and cost savings of the latest e-business mainframe technology and be assured of dependable output across a distributed network.

Large SAP implementations require many SAP application servers and it is not atypical for a sizeable company to run as many as 150 instances of SAP at once. Organizations can simplify their IT systems by moving the SAP application servers to one ZSeries box with each application running on an instance of Linux. But they still have to manage output from all of these applications. UniQPrint gives users a single point of control for cross-platform enterprise printing from an IBM eServer ZSeries platform running Linux and assures the delivery of documents from point of origin to any output destination, be it print, fax, e-mail, or Web site."
