Should I use outsourcing to address Y2038?

It totally depends on your needs. For new projects, the incremental cost of a requirement for Y2038 compliance (without using outsource staff) is probably trivial relative to the cost of the project. But if you have a significant existing portfolio of products and complex business systems, outsourcing may be a viable option to help with Y2038 assessment and/or mitigation, thus freeing up your prime in-house developers to continue working on forward looking projects instead of date/time issues.
