Author Offers Year 2000 Solutions

In Chris Jesse's latest book, Teaching Chipmunks to Dance: The Business Leaders' Guide to Making the Distributed Enterprise Year 2000 Compliant, the author emphasizes that the Year 2000 problem is not restricted just to mainframe computers. He says the problem also impacts the workstations and servers that have become a critical part of corporate productivity. To ensure that workstations and servers are Year 2000 compliant, Jesse suggests that companies use an asset tracking system to gather detailed information about every desktop computer and server and store that information in an electronic repository. Published by Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co., Dubuque, Iowa, the book also suggests six steps a company should take to manage the Year 2000 issue: problem identification, risk assessment, risk correction, compliance planning, compliance modeling, and risk management.
