Abstract:

Solving the Year 2000 Crisis helps programmers, managers, and consultants gain a clear understanding of the Y2K problemand how to beat it - from the ground up. It closely examines and evaluates the seven major problem-solving approaches currently available, helps readers choose the best method for a particular company or organization, then provides the information needed to implement a solution.

Well-written sections on project staffing and management help project managers determine whether to build a Y2K team with existing employees or consultants, and provide advice on choosing the best tools for improving their productivity. The book also addresses the business side of the Y2K issue - it explains the impact of the problem on PC and desktop systems, and details how to find and test potential failure points. Value-added appendixes contain actual problem-solving program code in COBOL, C++, FORTRAN, and Visual Basic.
