In this interview, Takashi Sano reviews the origin and history of the year 2000 problem in Japan, and summarizes its status in Japan as of late 1996. He presents a way for software vendors to make this problem known to the software community because the problem is very serious, with far reaching impacts on an organization's economics, demand for talent and workforce scheduling. Then, he discusses the core techniques used at Fujitsu to tackle the year 2000 problem when a re-engineering approach is used. Finally, he provides an overview of a relevant software tool developed by Fujitsu.
