Jeff Papows, head of IBM's Lotus unit, said that the Year 2000 (Y2K) problem may have an adverse affect on sales of the upcoming Notes R5.
At the Lotusphere 99 user conference in Orlando, Florida, yesterday, he said: "No one really knows how the Y2K issue will take effect. I hope that, in the short term, it may accelerate things in the first quarter, as by the third and fourth quarters people will become more and more involved in ensuring their systems are fixed."
He added: "In larger corporates, we are seeing them freeze any new implementations for the moment as they finish fixing systems. This could have an effect quarter to quarter."
