This means to us in IT that there is all kinds of updates and patches needed for our infrastructure. Sounds like a lot of chat about nothing... But when you start thinking about it there could be a real impact. Lets see what kind of equipment might need updates:
Time Clock software
Time sensitive encryption software/Applications
ATM (Banking Equipment)
And many more types of equipment.
I work in a very large enterprise network and there is all kinds of rushes to see what our impact might be. Billing services have to be accurate on time and anything dealing with voice services has to also have the correct time. One good thing is that if your equipment uses NTP (Network Time Protocol) you just have to make sure your NTP server is updated correctly.
So do you thing you will be impacted by the DST change?
What have you done to perpair for the DST change?
