  Mainframe developers, especially those with COBOL skills, may not get as much attention as, say, app developers — except from a number of employers. While the development community has been dazzled by opportunities in online and mobile environments, it seems to have forgotten that mainframes still run huge parts of the largest government agencies, financial institutions and even airlines. A sweeping survey commissioned by Micro Focus in 2009 found that 70 percent of the business and transaction systems around the world run on COBOL, and 90 percent of global financial transactions are processed in COBOL. The language supports over 30 billion transactions per day. The average American still interacts with a COBOL program 13 times a day.   Industry...

  CIOs are outsourcing crucial business tasks more than ever before. A survey of more than 200 IT decision-makers from small businesses to large enterprises found that 32 percent of organizations will increase their IT outsourcing investments in 2013. Some other headlines from market research firm Bluewolf’s report: 48 percent of the average outsourcing budget is spent on application services. 48 percent of organizations will hire more contractors, rather than full-time staff in      the next 12-18 months. 16 percent of all outsourced data center operations are managed in the cloud. “It’s clear that CIOs are rethinking the strategies around outsourcing,” says Bluewolf marketing campaign manager Amber O’Neill. “The increased look towards mixed sourcing models, such as staff augmentation, managed services, outtasking, project-based...
