4 4 Print needs to become essential 4 IT Network Print “The interesting thing is that the total print budget is equal to the total IT budget, yet, culturally, we manage the hell out of IT but not this important cost (print),” he said. “We over-manage IT and under-manage print.” Andrew Rowsell-Jones, research vice president at Gartner’s CIO Research GroupGartner’s CIO Research Group “The interesting thing is that the total print budget is equal to the total IT budget, yet, culturally, we manage the hell out of IT but not this important cost (print),” he said. “We over-manage IT and under-manage print.” Andrew Rowsell-Jones, research vice president at Gartner’s CIO Research GroupGartner’s CIO Research Group

5 5 Setting the scene Tree types of printing scenarios – Individual or all into ONE  Office Print: (distributed print)  Print server consolidation  From push to pull  Host Print: (print from Mainframe)  Reduce zOS MIPS consumption by moving conversion to IFLs (AFP to PCL, PS, IPDS, PDF etc.)  From push to pull  Identify users from CICS etc.  Apply policy based printing without programming  Mobile print: (global print) - option  Print from Mobile device 5 5

6 6 PCL PS IFLUbiquitech Secure print Print Rules Print Rules Business intelligence Business intelligence Print Queue Print Queue All formatting done on IFL.  Single Driver on all Workstations  Single pull print queue for all  Improved Citrix performance  No Citrix driver issues  Total centralized control Over 20% performance improvement on Citrix services due to load reduction All formatting done on server Office Print & Host Print How it works Print job is either directed to the chosen printer (push) or to the printer the users swipes their ID at (pull). All formatting done on server Mobile Print 6

7 7  Pull printing  Push printing  Cloud printing  Failover  Fallback  Embedded clients  Card Swipe (multi card- reader support)  Finger Scan  Hardware terminals  Job Accounting  LDAP Integration (or open API for other user app)  SSL encryption  Print rules  Client Billing  Print  Payment solution  MultiDomain Monitor  Mobile Printing Facility Features & Options

8 8 Always Partner Sale  Print Management Solutions:  Ubiquitech have today approx. 300 customer solutions in operations - approx users & above 25K MFP/Printers– primary on Linux platform.  Sales Chanel:  Ubiquitech are selling globally via partners within Print & IT business.  South America, USA and Canada  Europa  Middle East  Scandinavian – Primary Denmark and Sweden  Working on having a us based re-seller:

9 9 Area of Competition

10 10  z/Linux  One single server (IFL)  One single driver on workstation  Rendering on server  Single print queue  Citrix friendly  High Reliability and Availability  Failover on several levels  30 seconds delay if “plane crash”  High Serviceability  Service on running system  High Security  Software and hardware  High Performance  Linear performance/load  Formatting for single print queue (multi MFP vendors)  “Endless” resources  Fast I/O  Low TCO  Nearly no maintenance  Windows  Unstable cluster solution  Driver for each type of MFP  Rendering on workstation  Multiple print queues  Citrix demanding  Medium Reliability and Availability  Failover on SW level  Up to 2 hour delay if “plane crash”  Low Serviceability  Service on cold system  Medium Security  Only software  Low Performance  exponential performance/load  Formatting for several print queues (multi MFP vendors)  Limited resources  Slow I/O  High TCO  Heavy maintenance burden z/Linux print services vs. Windows Print Server

11 11 The HSPM solution  Move Print-MIPS to IFL  PUSH to PULL  CICS Print with userID  ALL PDLs supported  ALL incomming datastreams supported Job streamed to IFL 11

12 12 1.The human factor  The piles of print out in the printer room 2.From a mobile device  Non-secure connections 3.From the workstation to the server  Unauthorised access to network 4.At the Print Server  Print jobs on hard drive 5.At the MFP’s hard drive  Print jobs on hard drive 6.Interruptions, even when printing securely  User have to leave  Printer breaks down  Power failure 7.Encryption disconnected for performance reasons  Encryption/decryption is CPU-demanding 7 security breaches in printing

14 14 Large Business and Governmental areas: ① Exciting z-customers with host & office print ② SO customer’s IBM outsourcing ③ New customers – First In Enterprise  Heavy print load on host print and office print, high demand for Security Hosting:  MSP (Managed Service Provider)  CSI (Computer Service Integrator) Customer Profile – HSPM 14 Primary Verticals:  Banking and Finance  Insurance Other Verticals:  Public  Pharmaceutical Industry  Food and beverages  Transportation – Aviation and freight transport

15 15 1. The MIPS saving  If print under z/OS is a part of “4 hour running average peak” the substantial saving  If print is out-site 4HRAP then = 0 saving 2. The server consolidation  From “print rendering simultaneous” job we have 40:800 -> 1:20 ratio 3. The PUSH to PULL saving  By experience and from Gartner Group the potential saving going from PUSH to PULL is 1/3 The 3 value contributors:

21 21 Combining Ubiquitech’s solution leadership with MSPs Steve Groom CEO Vissensa remarked “Ubiquitech is a great example of the types of solutions that MSP’s like Vissensa can offer as an extension to a range of IT services. In this case, Vissensa was an ideal partner for Ubiquitech as our new zLinux Mainframe can offer larger scale thousands of printer estate cloud printing services alongside multitenant one or two printer services for SMB’s. Groom adds ”The trick is the way IBM zLinux can scale and handle complex workloads, which makes it a very stable platform for print as it doesn’t fall over, cause print server failures and reboots like a windows print server does…” vissensa-and-ubiquitech-launch- msp-based-enterprise-cloud-print- service/ Contact: Barrie HeptonstallBarrie Heptonstall ELS + Ubiquitech + MSPs Delighted Clients
