Mainframe applications are the lifeblood of the global economy. COBOL is the lifeblood of those applications. Yet few people realise or acknowledge the profound impact the COBOL language has had over its 60 year history. 

Showcasing a brand new OMP Working Group, this session reveals COBOL's secret history and the efforts of OMP and others to bring COBOL's value to the public eye.

The session will cover - 
1. COBOL's enduring value - how it stood the test of time
2. Recent trends to demonstrate COBOL's ongoing popularity
3. The work of the OMP in promoting COBOL
