Slide 3

What Should Each Enterprise Do? Evaluate their surroundings for probability and potential effect All Information Technology frameworks might be affected so appraisal ought to incorporate programming, equipment and working frameworks from any provider Remember that the effect might be much more extensive than just Information Technology frameworks Determine which key business procedures are time touchy Develop venture particular activity arranges Determine where item changes should be made Decide where Java apparatus ought to be utilized ColdFusion suggestions Match item change accessibility with support windows to moderate effect

Slide 4

What is the Potential Impact - Enterprise? Affect exists in undertakings that Use robotized timetable or planning capacities Utilize date and time stamps Process or control dates or times Software, Operating Systems and Firmware may oblige changes to DST rules Examples of cases in which changes might be expected to apply the new DST decides Enterprises that have frameworks anyplace on the planet that bolster clients, exchanges or applications associating with frameworks in nations changing DST might be affected Systems subject to precise sequencing of exchanges Systems/applications with inherent principles about DST Custom applications that have implanted DST decides Standardized code libraries that keep DST rules Calendar/mail applications that consequently change for DST rules

The way a logbook arrangement is influenced relies on upon whether it was made utilizing an old DST table (i.e. no fix connected) with chronicled DST data or utilizing another DST table (i.e. after fix is connected) with the upgraded 2007 DST data. Stages – Enterprise Servers Microsoft Exchange Novell GroupWise IBM Lotus Domino Devices Desktop Software

Slide 9

Risks of not overhauling the BlackBerry Scenarios Scenario #1: Any single case or repeating arrangements that were made utilizing the new DST table, begin in the predefined windows, and show utilizing an old DST table, show up 1 hour early.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server utilizes a SQL script to add redesigned time zone passages to the SyncDeviceConfig table. The BlackBerry Synchronization Service peruses this information and synchronizes time zone data in like manner on BlackBerry® gadgets. – RIM will disperse the script toward the beginning of February. – Run the script 1. At the charge provoke, change to the organizer in which the script dwells. 2.

Impact to BlackBerry Desktop Software Intellisync (Synchronize) USB Calendar Synchronization If the right fix has been connected to the Microsoft Windows Operating System then date-book synchronization ought to keep on functioning typically, paying little respect to whether any patches have been connected to the BlackBerry® gadget (for instance, if the client decides to physically change the time). Intellisync (Synchronize) USB Time/Date Synchronization If the right fix has been connected to the Microsoft Windows Operating System then BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.2 Service Pack 1 is required to appropriately synchronize the time. In the event that prior renditions of BlackBerry Desktop Software are utilized then the wrong time zone data will be sent. For instance, 1:00pm Central Standard Time (M
