    What is Beta?

    Beta can refer to both a stage in software development and a type of service offered by IT companies. In the context of software, such as the Apple Beta Software Program, beta refers to pre-release versions of software that are made available to users for testing purposes. This allows members of the program to use upcoming versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, watchOS, and HomePod software before they are released to the public, providing valuable feedback to the developers.

    As a service, BETA Services represents an IT company that focuses on a specialized sector within the industry. They provide maintenance for mainframe systems, particularly legacy systems that require expert knowledge and experience to manage. Their formation was specifically to address the needs of clients who require support for these older systems, ensuring their continued operation and reliability.
