Staying in touch with IR’s ongoing investments in support of payments solutions? Keeping abreast of what is new with Prognosis support of NonStop? There are many stories on the web describing the impact the global pandemic has had on industry, social distancing and working remotely are among the most widely covered topics. For IR, our support of remote workers remains in place even as we added infrastructure to better support development, support and service, marketing and sales and finance.

All of which is to say that despite the spread of COVID-19 IR has continued to enhance Prognosis and just a short time ago announced availability of Prognosis 11.8 – an update for Payments and Infrastructure markets. What is significant with this release is that enhancements have been made to both the experience and usability of Prognosis that can best be described as follows:

Improved management and performance

Enhanced Web UI performance, delivering a significant reduction in CPU and memory utilization in large scale deployments, as well as faster overall response.

Additional user-defined data fields for payments, increased to 60 definable fields, to allow for more flexible extension of monitoring functionality in between Prognosis releases and changing monitoring requirements.

IR has enjoyed partnerships with major solutions providers across a number of markets including such big names as Microsoft and, for the NonStop community and closer to home, ACI Worldwide. Prognosis 11.8 follows the January 2020 General Availability of  Prognosis 11.7 where expanded support for ACI and NonStop together with even more enhancements to management capabilities as follows:

Expanded Platform Support for ACI

The Prognosis 11.7 release includes expanded support for new platform versions from ACI and NonStop, specifically:

It is significant for the NonStop community to know that enhancements to both payments solutions and the underlying infrastructure that includes NonStop continue to be the subject of considerable investment by IR.

Coming soon is even bigger news and this will certainly generate further interest in Prognosis among NonStop users.
