How many of your sites use GMT Time?

How many of your sites use GMT Time?
This is cross posted to DB2-L and IBM-MAIN.

How many of you (companies), especially those running SAP, run GMT Time
with NO offset so that during Daylight Savings Time, the systems don't
need to be brought down.

We are hearing from our SAP Server folks that although DB2 Time Stamps
its logs with GMT even if you are using an offset, the records passed
back to the SAP Servers contain LOCAL time which causes problems during
Daylight Savings Time changes.

We are getting severe pressure from our SAP folks to run the z/OS LPARs
LOCAL=GMT.

(in response to Jim Petersen)
Since we're a globally operating company, we do everything by GMT. If you
think that's too british-centred (sic), just call it UTC.
