Despite industry regulators reporting that all's well with the UK infrastructure, some experts are worried that might not be the full story when it comes to Y2K compliance.
"The goal is business as usual during the critical period. There is still a lot of work to be done before we can say this with full confidence, but I am clear that the NIF process is underway as an effective route to delivering the information that businesses and the public require," said Don Cruickshank, chairman of the UK government's Action 2000 taskforce.
However Year 2000 expert, Peter de Jager, is typically dismissive of the government body's claims and suggests instead that people should question why we have seen so little evidence of failure in any parts of the infrastructure compliance program.
De Jager puts it simply, "Failure is evidence of effort". In other words no failure, no effort.
