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

By are soft boiled eggs safe analyzing are soft boiled eggs safe its own data and corroborating are soft boiled eggs safe with Google Trends are soft boiled eggs safe data on web searches, the are soft boiled eggs safe research uncovered a massive are soft boiled eggs safe spike in COBOL are soft boiled eggs safe interest that was three times are soft boiled eggs safe higher than normal.

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

Renewed interest in COBOL

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

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

CEO are soft boiled eggs safe of NTT DATA are soft boiled eggs safe UK, Simon Williams provided further are soft boiled eggs safe insight on Indeed's are soft boiled eggs safe research and are soft boiled eggs safe the need are soft boiled eggs safe to modernize legacy are soft boiled eggs safe code, saying:

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