The year 2000 (Y2K) remedy process is an ongoing business to be continued even after the rollover of the century. This is especially true for the organizations that fail to cope with the crisis properly. In this paper, major problems associated with the crisis are identified and key remedy issues such as effective remedy methods, a systematic implementation model, compliance testing, and resource management issues are identified and presented. Post‐millennium remedy guidelines are also suggested, as the Y2K crisis will be an ongoing business for many organizations for an extended period of time after the rollover of the millennium.
