Football fans may be slavering with anticipation over this year's World Cup, but for IT managers it may be nothing but a headache.
Corporate computer systems may suffer "computer meltdown" due to floods of Email gambling on the outcome, warned Internet expert Peter Cox, last week. Thousands of employees across the country are using Email to run sweepstakes on the World Cup event.
Cox, managing director of Internet Smartware, cited one large UK company whose computer system has already been flooded with more than 30,000 football-related Emails every week.
"UK businesses will score a massive own goal if they don't address the World Cup gambling problem," Cox predicted.
