About us

HORIZONT is a software development company located in Munich, Germany. The company was founded in 1993 by five consultants in the field of scheduling (Workload Automation).

The company’s first product was IWS/Graph, net plan display software for IWSz, which was developed together with IBM Germany. With more than 150 customers worldwide, it has become the de facto standard for IWS compatible software. Additional products include IWS/BatchAD, IWS/BatchCP and IWS/Audit, rounding off the IWSz product line.

With the introduction of XINFO in 1997 (SmartIS in the US in 1999), HORIZONT took a big step into a much wider market. XINFO integrates with schedulers other than IWS, for example Automic (UC4), CA-7, CA-Scheduler, Control-M or ZEKE. In 2002 HORIZONT released DSN/Change and SmartJCL, which complete the product line.

Since 2003 HORIZONT has had a new product, IWS/WebAdmin for IWS distributed and since 2012 IWS/WebAdmin for IWS z/OS.

In 2012 HORIZONT developed a new ground-breaking product: ProcMan, a modern change management system for workload objects. Following ProcMan modules are available at the moment: JCL, TWS z/OS definition, TWS z/OS daily plan, Control-M (z/OS and distributed) and Universal.

HORIZONT became part of the Beta Systems Group in December 2014.
