Description: As the year 2000 approaches, computer systems in place throughout the world are starting to go haywire because they treat the year as two digits instead of four. Minor problem? Hardly. It's been estimated that businesses and governments worldwide will spend at least $300 million in the next few years to correct it! For all the systems administrators and managers scurrying to meet the millennium deadline, this crucial guide will be a problem-solver and a lifesaver.

Wisely addressing the Year 2000 Problem from a managerial as well as technical viewpoint, the author spells out a five-step approach for disaster prevention. He alerts readers to the most likely trouble spots -- those involving systems that handle inventory, actuary, and critical accounting or business forecasting tasks. Furthermore, he points out that 2000 is also a leap year, which creates a whole other set of concerns!

Systems that aren't ready for the year 2000 may well face total collapse. Just as the "millennium problem" is shaping up as one of the computer world's most explosive topics in the upcoming year, "The Year 2000 Problem Solver" is sure to be one of its bestselling books.
