New IT grads and Java and .NET jockies are being re-trained to run mainframes by big companies desperate to replace a generation of IT staff giving up work.
That’s according to Compuware, who has released a study that says CIOs are growing concerned about the looming skills shortage in their mainframe rooms.
They are concerned because they believe that the mainframe will remain critical to businesses’ operations for at least another decade.
Yeah they said that about COBOL too.
Even in retirement we get to stick it to the man.
