PROGESTIC believes that the survival of organizations will depend on the state of their systems come December 31, 1999 (or sooner). The strategy that an organization adopts should depend on their risk situation. It must be clearly understood that the Year 2000 Challenge is about the survival of businesses by managing their risk.
