Why would CA need to ponder a hiring boost for Y2k fixes starting in
Jan 1, 2000 through the first quarter? If all the IT problems are
"fixed". Why would CA spend the money? How could it "guess" it would
spend $6 million?
"For its own systems, ...(CA) estimates its costs preparing for
potential problems associated with the century date change will be about
$30 million -- the vast majority of it having already been paid." The
money has been spent. Has the code been "fixed", and tested and IV&Ved"?
Since "(t)he company markets an array of enterprise management,
information management, and business application software products to a
host of manufacturing, financial services, and insurance companies, as
well as hospitals, educational institutions, and government agencies",
does that mean all of these may be "at risk"?
(FWIW, IT software is the least important of my concerns. If CA is
"obvious" in it's assessment, what about those non-IT systems?)
How do know where you're going if you don't know where you've been?
