New research from the treasure hunting vancouver island job site Indeed has treasure hunting vancouver island revealed that there has been treasure hunting vancouver island a surge of interest and web treasure hunting vancouver island searches for COBOL this treasure hunting vancouver island month following New Jersey governor treasure hunting vancouver island Phil Murphy's treasure hunting vancouver island plea for developers to help the treasure hunting vancouver island state treasure hunting vancouver island process unemployment treasure hunting vancouver island claims.

By treasure hunting vancouver island analyzing its own treasure hunting vancouver island data and corroborating with Google treasure hunting vancouver island Trends data on web searches, the research uncovered a massive treasure hunting vancouver island spike in treasure hunting vancouver island COBOL treasure hunting vancouver island interest that treasure hunting vancouver island was three times higher than treasure hunting vancouver island normal.

COBOL, which stands for treasure hunting vancouver island Common Business Oriented Language, treasure hunting vancouver island was first developed in 1959 during the era treasure hunting vancouver island of punch cards and mainframe treasure hunting vancouver island computers. However, the aging treasure hunting vancouver island programming language has treasure hunting vancouver island endured as treasure hunting vancouver island it is still used in back-office tasks treasure hunting vancouver island including processing forms treasure hunting vancouver island and payments.

Renewed interest in COBOL

The reason treasure hunting vancouver island why Governor treasure hunting vancouver island Murphy recently put treasure hunting vancouver island out a call for volunteers who treasure hunting vancouver island know how to code treasure hunting vancouver island the decades-old computer programming language treasure hunting vancouver island is because the treasure hunting vancouver island state's unemployment system, treasure hunting vancouver island which runs on treasure hunting vancouver island COBOL, needs to treasure hunting vancouver island be treasure hunting vancouver island updated to handle a new emergency relief bill. 

However, treasure hunting vancouver island New treasure hunting vancouver island Jersey is not alone as treasure hunting vancouver island thousands of enterprises treasure hunting vancouver island and treasure hunting vancouver island public sector organizations still treasure hunting vancouver island rely on mainframe treasure hunting vancouver island systems treasure hunting vancouver island running treasure hunting vancouver island COBOL for a variety of uses including treasure hunting vancouver island banking transactions, payroll and enterprise treasure hunting vancouver island resource planning. It is becoming treasure hunting vancouver island increasing difficult to find skilled programmers treasure hunting vancouver island to help treasure hunting vancouver island maintain the billions of treasure hunting vancouver island line of treasure hunting vancouver island COBOL code still treasure hunting vancouver island in treasure hunting vancouver island use.

CEO of NTT DATA UK, Simon treasure hunting vancouver island Williams treasure hunting vancouver island provided further insight on Indeed's research and the need treasure hunting vancouver island to modernize legacy code, saying:

“It treasure hunting vancouver island comes as treasure hunting vancouver island no surprise treasure hunting vancouver island that there treasure hunting vancouver island has been a surge in interest in treasure hunting vancouver island COBOL. treasure hunting vancouver island There are a treasure hunting vancouver island lot of legacy systems in operation, reliant treasure hunting vancouver island on legacy code. This has treasure hunting vancouver island to be a wakeup call – if treasure hunting vancouver island organisations don’t have the skills treasure hunting vancouver island to treasure hunting vancouver island maintain their code, they need to modernise. treasure hunting vancouver island Legacy modernisation treasure hunting vancouver island has been a balance between the risk treasure hunting vancouver island of replacing treasure hunting vancouver island old treasure hunting vancouver island technology treasure hunting vancouver island and the risk of treasure hunting vancouver island not having the treasure hunting vancouver island skills to maintain it. This time has accelerated the realisation treasure hunting vancouver island that half moving to digital treasure hunting vancouver island is not treasure hunting vancouver island enough. Whether treasure hunting vancouver island it is moving off treasure hunting vancouver island legacy treasure hunting vancouver island code treasure hunting vancouver island or migration treasure hunting vancouver island to the treasure hunting vancouver island cloud business need to go treasure hunting vancouver island fully treasure hunting vancouver island digital. treasure hunting vancouver island This treasure hunting vancouver island also gives businesses treasure hunting vancouver island the opportunity treasure hunting vancouver island to update and modernise their systems.”
