"The first output management solution to support Linux on IBM's new S/390 eServer zSeries is to be launched by Macro 4, a leading independent developer of information delivery and systems management solutions. Users of Macro 4's SAP certified output management solution, will now have the e-business mainframe technology benefits of space, energy and cost savings coupled with the assurance of dependable output across a distributed network.

Macro 4's solution 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 the point of origin to any output destination - be it print, fax, e-mail, or the Web. It also allows the management of output from multiple applications: large SAP implementations require many SAP application servers and large companies often run as many as 150 instances of SAP at once. Organisations can simplify their IT systems by moving the SAP application servers to one zSeries box with each application running on an instance of Linux."
