The Y2K Problem
How will it affect you?
IBIS Y2K Statement
Y2K in Botswana
IBIS Year 2000 Awareness Statement
Info Botswana Internet Services as a user of computer based information
technology systems is aware of the problems that may be caused by
systems that do not correctly process end of century dates. IBIS makes
use of systems that process date and time information and as such has
evaluated its susceptibility to date specific programming errors.
All of IBIS systems that provide direct services to our customers, such
as network and connectivity systems have been evaluated for risk, and
found to be fully compliant with all Year 2000 compliance tests.
Computer systems used peripherally in the provision of these services
all operate with a UNIX operating system, and the physical network and
access router equipment to which our customers connect does not
internally make use of real-time clock information.
Indirect services such as billing and accounting systems have been
evaluated, and, where deficiencies in either software or desktop
operating systems have been found, steps are being taken to upgrade or
replace non-compliant packages. This will ensure that IBIS will
continue to be able to process both debtor and creditor accounts after 1999.
