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. Time Machine has been widely used by thousands of enterprises including 47 of the Fortune 100 and major government agencies as well as top enterprises worldwide. It has become a standard testing tool for most enterprise deploying applications such as ERP or CRM.
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.
