WS: IBMCFG: Supporting Multiple Time Zones (Doc ID 1644918.1)

Last updated on MARCH 26, 2015

Applies to:

JD Edwards World Computer Operations - Version A9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Globalization and consolidation are becoming the norm rather than the exception for World customers. An enhancement will support transactions conducted in different time zones, at a user level of detail. This will mitigate the need for multiple World instances to manage a global implementation of World. Now all transactions are considered in one time zone, set for the partition in which the World instance is running. Time and date stamps on transactions do not always accurately represent the time and date when they were actually transacted.

By adding the actual time zone in which a user is performing the transaction, far greater transactional accuracy can be maintained as more World customers consider globalization and consolidation. Control of transaction timing can be a logistical problem for World users whose organizations span not only time zones but also date lines, particularly at month-end or annual closing. This will help encourage World customers to keep World as a strategic component in their planning.
