Webinar: Top 10 Best Practices for Date Time Simulation Testing z/OS Applications

All Baseline Posts, Webinars

Most z/OS mainframe applications are designed to perform special actions at certain dates or times, such as: the last day of the week, month, quarter or year; public holidays; the clock rollover at midnight; policy renewal and anniversary dates; etc.¬†¬†Without running them under a simulated future date and time, these applications can’t be fully verified and may cause unforeseen, and potentially highly visible, problems in production.

Accurate Date/Time Simulation (DTS) testing:

  • Prevents IT downtime
  • Protects against financial errors due to wrong dates and times
  • Reduces regression testing costs

Unfortunately, DTS testing usually involves additional expensive LPARs, time consuming and error-prone IPLs, or inflexible tools that force manual workarounds during system upgrades. SoftBase and DTS industry leader DDV Technologies have teamed up to bring you an educational presentation on the Top 10 Best Practices for DTS testing z/OS applications, with special emphasis on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). In this 60 minute webinar, you’ll learn how to perform DTS testing:

  • On time and under budget
  • Across all critical mainframe z/OS environments
  • Without requiring manual workarounds
  • While keeping dedicated system resources to a minimum!
