What a crock, De Jager as unleashed ...
1. No mention of suppliers ( Dominos ). 2. No mention of GPS ( wonder how _they beat the military? ). 3. No mention of contingencies ( electrical, water, et al ).
Mutual Life of Canada:
1. How many lines of code ( LOC )? . Extrapolation: CAN$15M ~= 15M LOC?!? ( I don't think so! ) I've worked on an AS/400 bankruptcy system that had 3M LOC in it!! 2. Number of folks that DID the work: N/A ( That's helpful!? ) 3. Again, no mention of contingency plans ( i.e., policy denials, etc. ) 4. All in 2 years ... indeed!
These self-proclamations of Y2K-compliance do not comport with reasonableness. WORTHLESS!
De Jager will rue the day he allowed this "ligitimization" of disinformation into public domain. Shame on him!
De Jager has garnered entry into the "Y2K Hall of Shame." Right in there with the GartnerGroup, US Congress, ... !

I'm surprised that it has anything at all! Don't those companies have laywers? Perhaps the used to.....
Bob: I wouldn't put DeJager and Gartner group in the same sentence though I get your point. De jager, in the respect that he still is letting his emotions get in the way (hope springs eternal), is a DWGI while the Gartner Group is just schizophrenic.
