IBM® Application Time Facility for z/OS® is date and time simulation software for System z™.
It helps software development teams ensure that their software performs as intended with virtual date and time testing.
- Helps your developers test applications that rely on timing, time zones, or time and date formatting without changing System z date and time settings
- Shifts time zones for online regions so that your users see their local time and so that dated application file updates have the local time.
- Restarts a failing job at the date and time it failed, ensuring that file update and reports are not affected.
- Runs jobs that, because of unavoidable circumstances, are over a deadline so that they can finish on time.
