One-third Aust Y2K projects incomplete: IDC By Staff writers 9 December, 1999
SYDNEY - More than 20 per cent of Y2K-related projects in Australia were still in progress as of December 1, according to global research by IDC.
The preliminary research reports 62 per cent of Australian companies have completed systems changes for Y2K, compared with almost 27 per cent of companies in the US. More than 56 per cent of businesses in Belgium were still working on systems. The research also reported 45 per cent of businesses would have staff "on hand" at midnight on New Years Eve. IDC reported 40 per cent of Australian businesses did not expect trouble with their systems, but 9.2 per cent were expecting problems with office systems and a similar amount expecting difficulties with financial systems. Almost 80 per cent of US businesses do not expect to experience system problems from Y2K.

Sorry, Hot link did not work.
To rephrase the above 20% of US businesses expect a Y2K problem to occur. And 73% are still working on their Y2K programs.
