The Year 2000

In May's Newsletter, I discussed what the Y2K problem was, In June, how you could be affected.  This month - How to try to protect your business.

2. Outline objectives for compliance, general strategy, and timeline.

3. Create a Y2K team to lead and coordinate efforts


1. Conduct an inventory of all computers, software, equipment inventory, preventive maintenance lists, and vendor service contracts.

2. Identify potential computer and building systems, and equipment at risk for the Y2K problem.

3. For each computer, software, and piece of equipment assess the risk of the Y2K failure and the impact on the organization of the failure.


1. Rank the risks and impact on the organization from high to low.

2. Develop a solution for each system. Assign in-house engineers, technicians, or power users to develop a solution.

3. Determine the cost of the solutions

4. Prepare an overall plan and budget for Y2K redemption

I will address this issue further in my 1999 newsletters.  If you have anything you would like to add, please email your comments to me.
