The death of COBOL has been predicted for decades, but significant numbers of COBOL installations continue to process data upon which the world depends. The statistics speak for themselves!*
That’s proof positive of the significant role COBOL plays in everyday life. COBOL programmers are necessary for legacy enhancement, maintenance and roadmap transition efforts. While many COBOL experts are nearing retirement, there is a growing interest, from companies such as Micro Focus International, in educating a new generation of COBOL Pros. Nothing beats experience … and at High Touch … we have that experience!
