Enterprise Print Manager™
Complete Print and AFP Conversion Solution for z/OS® Mainframe
All-in-one AFP Printing & Converting
Solution for z/OS® Mainframe
Enterprise Print Manager (EPM™) is the all-in-one z/OS® software solution for mainframe printing. It provides a single focal point for operation, control, and print management while it handles multiple input and output formats.
Enterprise Print Manager receives and handles all output from mainframe applications. The output is received in the native z/OS® format; AFP, Line data, etc.
Key Functions Enterprise Print Manager
Real Time AFP Conversion
Enterprise Print Manager performs real-time conversion of documents into the preferred output formats always maintaining the original look. Documents are automatically routed to the next step in the document workflow.
EPM integrates with office printers and production printers as well as other applications residing both inside and outside the mainframe environment.
AFP and Line Data Conversion; AFP to PDF, AFP to PCL and AFP to PostScript
Enterprise Print Manager transforms AFP and line data from the native mainframe format into PCL, PostScript, PDF, or ICDS. In addition, SCS may be transformed into ASCII text for non-AFP applications.
Web Application Integration and Archiving
EPM is furthermore the z/OS platform for mainframe to Internet application integration using the common standards of both environments i.e. AFP to PDF conversion, providing viewing, host-based e-mailing, and archiving input.
EPM comes with easy administration through straightforward user interfaces.
Using the same AFP resources as IBM’s PSF, the EPM solution converts and prints AFP documents consisting of electronic backgrounds (overlays), graphics, and color images on any type of connected printer in the office network.
Ready for AFP/Archive, AFP/A ISO Standard
Enterprise Print Manager is prepared to support the new AFP/Archive (AFP/A) standard. ISO 18565:2015 specifies the AFP document architecture by defining a subset appropriate for the long-term preservation and retrieval of documents and resources.

Integration of the AFP Format into Office Infrastructure
AFP printing on laser printers is easily implemented. Using the same AFP resources as IBM PSF, EPM converts existing line-based legacy applications by adding form overlays, graphics, and color images, all without modifying the host legacy or batch application. EPM prints host output directly to printers already defined on the mainframe.
Enterprise Print Manager also integrates with Secure Pull Print solutions by including the user name and job ID in the output file that is submitted to the secure print solution allowing users to collect both the host application output and the desktop output on the same printer.
Compatibility with AFP/Archive, AFP/A ISO Standard
Enterprise Print Manager is ready to support the new AFP/Archive (AFP/A) standard. The ISO 18565:2015 standard specifies the AFP document architecture by defining an appropriate subset for the long-term preservation and retrieval of documents and assets.
