Daily News Second Major Negative Y2K Change By Sylvia Dennis, Newsbytes November 23, 1999
The Compliance Tracker Delta Report for the month included 232 negative status changes, 155 of which resulted from products being down-graded from compliant to another "not Y2K ready" status by their manufacturer.
In addition, the firm reports there were significant Y2K Corrective Action Plan updates for 775 products already classified as "Action Required."
Kevin Weaver, the firm's vice president, said that, with the 118 products for which manufacturers withdrew all Y2K disclosure information, a total of 1,291 products were tracked by Infoliant as reporting some sort of Y2K compliance status change in October.
"All of these changes in late 1999 may mean that companies who thought they had solved the Y2K problem early might experience problems in 2000," he said. If this happens, Weaver said, vendors, lawyers, and insurers are sure to ask what steps were taken to stay on top of the latest corrective action plans.
"With as late as some of these disclosures are being reported, and the bulk of corporate Y2K remediation efforts being completed, the history of how some manufacturers continued to revise Y2K readiness information will surely be scrutinized if failures or losses occur," he said.
Weaver warned that, if nothing else, the changes foreshadow a likely increase in technical support calls from users who didn't get the latest information in time.
