CIO advises 'follows the sun' on Y2K
California chief information officer Elias Cortez's Year 2000 strategy involves a Follow the Sun program to track the global impact of the date change up to 12 hours in advance.
Because many nations, as well as the rest of the United States will be dealing with Year 2000-related problems before the clocks strike midnight in California, Cortez plans to benefit from that advance knowledge.
Through Follow the Sun, Cortez can track Year 2000 technology problems going on in other places before they hit California. Emergency planners will be able to better prepare what might hit at home, he said.
