AT&T's Deadline: December, 1998 (The Universal Date)



The familiar corporate deadline date for finishing code repairs is December, 1998. But AT&T expects to be finished with testing, too. This, with 500 million lines of code to go through. I wish them well. Since their hired repair team got started identifying bad code in November, 1996, they have a huge job ahead of them.

In November of 1996, DMR TRECOM started to identify computer code at AT&T that was non-compliant; that is, code that had only a two-digit date field. Together, AT&T and DMR TRECOM will continue to perform assessment and begin the process of repair and testing of AT&T's code. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 1998.

"Our goal is to be Year 2000 compliant by year-end 1998," said George Brucia, Year 2000 Program Vice President for AT&T.
