CIT Has Powerful Y2K Services and Tools Already in Place
Year 2000 problems are getting more and more press coverage lately. Congress and the general public have raised awareness of the problem and, in February 1998, the President issued an executive order creating the Year 2000 Conversion Council. Former OMB deputy director John Koskinen will serve as Council chairman, overseeing the Y2K transition of federal agencies. The executive order instructs agency heads to give Y2K the highest priority, to provide the fullest cooperation possible to the chairman, and to designate "a responsible official" to the council. Now is the time to ensure that your Y2K project plans are in place and on schedule. If they are not, you will need to know why and how to get back on track before the highest office in the land starts asking these questions.
The good news is that CIT already has in place the tools for MVS-based systems, as well as a COBOL application conversion service. The fastest and easiest way to complete your Y2K project—and avoid all those embarrassing questions—is to use the CIT year 2000 conversion service (see article in Interface 203). If you are now ready to test your converted applications, bring them to the NIH Computer Center’s MVS Y2K testing facility (see article in Interface 203). For more information on the tools and services we have available to help you, go to the Year 2000 webpage http://silk.nih.gov/silk/year2000. Or call TASC and ask about Year 2000 services to get the help you need.Editor’s Note: Excerpted from Interface 203 (March 1998).
