Countdown Y2K: business survival planning for the year 2000

Front Cover
The anxious buzz over history's most monumental technical glitch is fast approaching fever pitch. The mammoth problem extends beyond just the mainframe: effective solutions must accommodate not only the corporate back office, but also the desktop, and embedded systems, as well as issues of corporate liability, revenue loss, and infrastructure failure. The comprehensive, end-to-end corporate remedy outlined in Countdown Y2K is the first to truly cover all of these bases. In short, it is IT's final remaining hope for effectively handling the millennium bug. As it stands, business organizations are beginning to realize that it is already too late to expect all of their mission-critical systems to be 'Year 2000 viable' by January 1, 2000. Authors Peter de Jager and Richard Bergeon inject a refreshing dose of sanity into the Y2K proceedings, offering a straightforward, easy-to-follow plan for minimizing damage, educating personnel, and moving toward an effective and lasting recovery.
