a patent-pending software product, provides virtual
clocks to facilitate application testing, what-if
analyses and time zone adjustment. It is a proven
solution widely utilized by Fortune 500 and global 1000
"Without Time Machine, we would not be able to test quick enough to meet our critical deadlines. Time Machine reduced our test cycle by 3-4 times and reduced our testing costs by threefold. "
"Universal Credit project is an extremely complex environment involving many groups and testing is always under a time crunch.
It's a great challenge to coordinate between groups for critical testing phases/cases and we are very pleased that Time Machine delivered on its promise of saving time and expense with future date
testing our mission critical application. In addition, Solution-Soft's team provided exceptional levels of support."
"Not using Time Machine has created a huge mess in new implementations.
For all new projects moving forward Time Machine will be used as a
standard for our testing requirements, ultimately this will satisfy our
Medavie Blue Cross, we have to conduct date
forward testing for our internal provincial
claims systems on a regular basis. With Time
Machine, we're able to host multiple Oracle
testing environments on the same system for
multiple developers and testers. This not only
saves significant costs for potential hardware
and software, but also streamlines our
application testing process."
Machine provided a quick and efficient way to
date forward servers without having to build a
solution or change application code. The
product (Time Machine) has worked out as
advertised and we do not have any issues.
It simply works! "
"Time Machine is invaluable for our on-time
deployment of the Change Program Management
System (CPMS) for our client, The Australian
Taxation Office. I really appreciate
the quick turn-around time from Solution-Soft
team on this requirement. This is
indicative of the professional and consistent
service that Solution-Soft has been providing us
on an on-going basis which in turn has helped us
to deliver and meet our clients requirements in
a timely manner."
Time machine software has significantly
increased our testing productivity for changes
we make to our billing system. It’s saved us
countless hours. What Time Machine does, it does
very, very well.”
"Nordea has a large and
complex test environment, with high requirements
on security on stability. Time Machine enabled
us to test some of our biggest and most visible
applications, with very little affecting our
infrastructural setup. I can warmly recommend
Time Machine when there is a need to simulate
date and time."

customers have found that using
Time Machine to test and
validate all date & time logic
within their new or migrated
environments has allowed them to
complete their migration process
on-time and under budget.
By providing unique and
individual virtual dates & times
to users of the system, Time
Machine can allow any tester to
run any module under any
specific virtual date needed.
This allows the testing group to
simultaneously run certain
processes with a simulated
end-of-month, while others can
be checked for any future
year-end validity, and other
applications run in real-time.
Users of Time Machine can easily
condense a months’ worth of
processing down to a week, or
years’ worth of processing to a

|Active Directory Testing|
Time Machine provides the only way to thoroughly date test software applications in an Active Directory environment. The Time Machine software was engineered specifically to allow applications to maintain their security privileges with the AD domain while they move forward in time with a "virtual clock". This allows the processes under test to see all their necessary network resources while testing is completed.
Microsoft's Active Directory functions as the central security control in Microsoft networks as well as many mixed mode enterprises. It provides a variety of networking services such as LDAP, Kerberos-based authentication, Domain Name services, and single sign-on for domain access. It also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates. Because Active Directory is so tightly coupled with the systems in it's domain it is nearly impossible to date & time test applications for future events. This is due primarily to Microsoft's Kerberos authentication process which prevents any system clock changes.
