One in six organisations -- representing nearly 40% of gross domestic product -- will fail to meet the year 2000 computer problem deadline, warns services company Cap Gemini in its latest survey.
"The situation seems to be getting worse as the deadline approaches," responded Robin Guenier, executive director of Taskforce 2000.
