Overview

Time is running out. If you haven't begun to fix your Year 2000 problem yet, you are playing catch-up. Thousands of companies have already awakened from denial and started on the path to a solution.

The bad news is, we have a universal computing emergency that needs to be addressed now. January 1, 2000 is an utterly unforgiving deadline that cannot be extended.

The good news is that there is something you can do about it. The technical know-how exists and all of the tools are available to you today. In fact, you're holding one of the most important tools in your hands right now.

Written by the original prophet of the Year 2000 crisis and the editor of the premier Year 2000 bulletin, the Millennium Journal, this book explains exactly what the problem is, why it's so complex, and what the implications are to the organization. Peter de Jager and Richard Bergeon help you develop a strategy to prepare for and protect yourself from the far-reaching ramifications of 00. Espousing the view that the situation is much more of a management challenge than a technical one, this valuable guide thoroughly covers important cost-control issues and gives you practical ways to set up efficient solutions.
