IBM z/OS software product that began life as BatchPipes/MVS, announced April 1994. After a second release in September 1995, it was replaced March 1997 by SmartBatch for OS/390, which includes BatchPipes functionality plus some BMC software. Then, in April 2000, SmartBatch was withdrawn, and a few days later, Version 2 of BatchPipes for OS/390 was announced. Currently, BatchPipes uses the Coupling Facility to pipe data between jobs running on different systems in a Parallel Sysplex. Includes the BatchPipeWorks component.

FlowBasedProgramming is currently embodied in BatchPipes see http://www.ibm.com/common/ssi/rep_ca/3/897/ENUS200-093/ENUS200-093.PDF and http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/s390/os390/bkserv/swpdf/bpipes21.html

Even CICS can be a stage in the flow. A CICS transaction can even be invoked for each item http://www-306.ibm.com/software/htp/cics/support/supportpacs/individual/ca1j.html

In a Sysplex, pipes can cross systems: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/zseries/library/techpapers/pdf/gm130540.pdf
