WorkForce Software today announced outstanding scalability for its time and attendance solution, with the ability to support upwards of 100,000 users on Dell server platforms running Red Hat Linux and Oracle.
WorkForce Software provides flexible, web-based time and attendance solutions to large organizations with complex requirements in order to automate the management, collection, and calculation of employee hours in real time. The performance testing simulated the usage of the WorkForce Software Solution on a test population of 100,000 employees under a series of high demand real-life conditions.
"Large enterprise organizations need to be assured that their widely distributed time and attendance solutions have the scalability and reliability necessary to meet their needs at critical points in the payroll cycle and can support a growing employee population,” said Mike Knister, Chief Technology Officer of WorkForce Software. "The simulation results achieved during this scalability testing clearly prove the advanced capabilities of the WorkForce Software application and Java J2EE technology. Our results are even more outstanding when considering the real-time nature of our application, which applies all business rules, validations, and calculations for employee pay in real-time."
The scalability testing was done by first creating application test scripts to simulate a "day in the life" of the WorkForce application end-user. The scripts covered everyday activities performed by employees such as self service transactions to enter, submit, and approve timesheets and clocking in and out using badge readers. The simulation was based on proprietary WorkForce Software technology which generates the exact same transactions in the exact same way as an end user using a badge reader or web-browser. The impact on the servers, therefore, matches a real-world environment. The tests were run with Dell servers using Red Hat Linux and an Oracle 10g infrastructure. The testing indicated that with such a large user base, the hardware platforms and software could handle all the simultaneous users with sub-second response times.
The WorkForce Software Solution has 100% web-based multi-tiered architecture is designed to provide unlimited scalability and to meet complex requirements of large organizations without customization. Its open architecture and extensive use of Java, XML, and web technologies deliver a “best of breed” application to support the largest most complex organizations in multiple industries including manufacturing, banking, energy, education, healthcare, government and more.
