Set up the timestamp date format to 'YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss[.fff]'; in Edit script

then use the below expression

=Timestamp(Timestamp#(SubField(SubField('20161020T074931.000-0500','.',1),'T',1) &Chr(32) & SubField(SubField('20161020T074931.000-0500','.',1),'T',-1),'YYYYMMDD hhmmss'), 'yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:s')

this will workout
