Batch Processing & Time Zone Pains

If you’re familiar with AX AOS topology, and you’re a global organization, you already know the pain point that is Time zone in AX 2012.  The system is designed to host multi-company, multi-currency, and multi-time zone, however not all functionality in the system is time zone aware. One of those major sets of functionality is the SysOperation framework.
