The IT sector cannot cope with the level of new legislation coming out of Europe, industry bodies told the European Parliament this week. "Every piece of legislation and every new regulation has an impact on IT," complained John Clayton, chairman of the IT trade association Eurim. "IT is the oil in the machine of modern economies and we just can't cope."
He was backed up by Chris Moore, IBM's coordinator for the Year 2000 issue, who warned that "the two most complex projects ever to hit the IT industry are coming simultaneously" - Year 2000 and European Monetary Union.
Any further major legal changes on top of these two will put IT suppliers, programmers and other experts under intolerable pressure, he argued.
