Solution-Soft & Accenture Co-Host Global Web Seminar on Time Machine®
SANTA CLARA, Ca. June 12, 2012 — SolutionSoft Systems Inc, a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions today co-hosted with Accenture an introduction & overview webinar of Time Machine for opted-in members of Accenture’s global integration teams.
For more than 10 years now, Accenture teams world-wide have been introducing Time Machine to their various clients as part of a best-practice methodology for testing applications that have date & time based testing requirements. Many projects are for mission critical application deployment such as customized large government application, ERP/CRM type of implementation and all of them have been enjoying on-time delivery and cost efficiency from using Time Machine.
The good news is that you've won the deal for an enterprise application deployment project-but the next thing you are facing is the challenge of the architectural design & POC phase of the project, deployment within the client's budgets & limited resources, and on-time delivery! In this presentation, you'll learn how and why Time Machine becomes a standard for testing critical projects; in many cases, you'll find Time Machine a must have solution.
Using Time Machine you will:
1. Deliver projects on time
2. Streamline testing within complex multi-tier infrastructure
3. Optimize your testing resources
4. Make testing possible in Active Directory and Kerberos secured environments
5. Save costs
Time Machine® is a proven solution and widely utilized by global enterprises and consultants. It is being used by many Accenture teams around the world to optimize testing, allowing these teams to meet their delivery milestones. Time Machine is considered an integral part of any date & time application testing for many customers.
A number of Accenture team members will be on the webinar to give their input on the success they have had in their completed and current projects.

About Time Machine
Time Machine is a patent-pending software solution designed to enable testing and simulation of specified system dates and times without modifying or resetting the system clock. The software allows defined applications and users to run under any defined future date, past date or time zone using a virtual clock while the underlying system time remains unchanged. And with the most recent feature added to Time Machine, users can now specify variable speed clocks. This addition allows modifications to virtual clocks to run from 1000 times slower or faster than a real clock. This addition allows modifications to virtual clocks to run from 1000 times slower than a real clock up-to 1000 times faster. With variable speed clocks many interesting simulations can be easily created. For instance using a fast clock, a utility company’s network operations center can replay in minutes the recorded events from a black-out event that normally transpired over the course of days. Or, by implementing a slow clock a financial services firm can create a delay in batch processing while data is loaded into the system.
With all these abilities Time Machine proves itself as a powerful tool for performing "what-if" testing on systems resources and programs. Time Machine’s unique solution for user-based time morphing for UNIX, Linux and Windows Servers allows test environments to simultaneously run up to 20,000 individually defined virtual clocks at once and supports both group and user level time offsets.
When initiating an ERP migration, testing new additions to CRM, performing legacy migration, or integrating new modules to an existing software infrastructure, there are specific logic elements of the project that will need to be thoroughly tested for all conceivable forward date & time values to guarantee that the system will operate as expected in the future. This involves running the applications with actual data through an extensive range of past, present and future dates, and scrutinizing the results for any functional inconsistencies
Time Machine has been has been field proven as an effective tool for comprehensive testing of SAP, LDAP & Kerberos integration (Active Directory Testing), Legacy migrations, Oracle (Siebel or PeopleSoft) roll-outs, Tibco, J2EE applications in WebSphere, Windows .NET applications, and even web-based AJAX programs.
