Background Information on Time-Zone and Daylight Saving
ECMP stores all date/time data in universal time. Date/times that are entered by the user get converted to universal time upon entry and converted back into the local time-zone when they need to be displayed.
Daylight Saving forces an additional offset to be made upon each conversion when the date/time falls within the daylight saving period.
Complexity arises because the date/time being converted could also be in the past or in the future. For example when you run a report that covers several years you are looking at old daylight saving periods. This is resolved by keeping a cache of daylight saving periods for the pertinent time-zones and monitoring changes made by adhoc Windows patches that update time-zone information.
Having daylight savings cached per time-zone and user specific time-zone settings mean that EEO module can accurately support simultaneous users in multiple time zones.
Asset Management will form the platform for the Change Management Application currently under development. It will be fully functional now but there are bigger plans in this area particularly around ability to model sustainability initiatives and abatement programs.
