Y2K denial proliferates

Many companies are in denial over their chances of beating the year 2000 deadline, according to an IT executive who has spent years tracking the issue.

"A lot of organisations are running late," says Ross McLean, former Asia/Pacific director of Hitachi Data Service's Y2K division and now managing director of MS400 Asia Pacific.

Just as many chose to deny there was a problem in the early days of Y2K awareness; the closing stages are bringing "similar levels of denial about missing the deadline", McLean says.

"My feeling is there will be many overruns into the end of the first quarter of 2000."
