Agent of Change: COBOL Developer Day

  1. 1. Addressing the Forces of Change
  2. 2. We Are All Agents of Change! …so why is implementing change so difficult?
  3. 3. Current Perspectives Slow US Economic Growth: +1.7% GDP Record US Debt: 16.7T Job-less Recovery: Unemployment at 7.6% Downgraded S&P Credit Rating: AA+ Sequestration: 85B in Budget Cuts

  7. 7. The IT Scorecard
  8. 8. 2013 IT budgets to increase spending by only 1.4% 2013 IT spending facing challenges Expected 2.09T global spend. US to show 7.5% increase Measured as a percentage of revenues, financial services firms spend more on IT than any other industry. Ranging from $270B to 460B Financial services IT budgets equal 7.3% of their revenues, well above the industry average of 3.7% Scorecard Results ‘Keeping the Lights On’ 70-80% of IT budget -
  9. 9. IT Perceptions 57% Significant differences in perception between IT and non-IT employees: of IT leaders agreed that their organization was "distributed, agile, and flexible” of business people outside IT agree 29%
  10. 10. Barriers to Innovation
  11. 11. Barriers to Innovation: IT Debt….the backlog 46% did not know the value of their IT debt 44% have no structured process for measuring and managing IT Debt 45% without a process are not planning to implement one 57% say they have an unclear picture of their application portfolio Source: $1 trillionGlobal IT debt will rise to by 2015
  12. 12. Barriers to Innovation: the Skills Challenge Data gathered from a global survey of Academic leaders 1 in 4 Universities surveyed teach COBOL today 65%COBOL is uncool 65% state that COBOL is considered (by students) ‘uncool’ or is unheard of completely 5% of new graduates have COBOL language skills 10,000 US workers reaching retirement age (65) every day - Occurring over next 19 years. Representing 26% of US workforce

  20. 20. Smart Thinking REDUCTION OF BACKLOG / IT DEBT DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES New Architecture Mobile Cloud Development Efficiency Skills and Organization
  21. 21. Introducing Visual COBOL
  22. 22. Embracing Innovation with Visual COBOL REDUCTION OF BACKLOG / IT DEBT DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES New Architecture Mobile Cloud Development Efficiency Skills and Organization
  23. 23. Embracing Innovation with Visual COBOL Cloud Mobile New Architecture Skills and Organization Development Efficiency
  24. 24. Efficiency highly effective development results with Visual COBOL • Faster code compile, edit and debug process • 30% improvement in developer productivity • Greater development team collaboration • Advanced COBOL development tooling – background parsing, autocomplete, smart editing, etc. • Unified development environment supporting efficient cross-team development • Developer collaboration across all languages Benefits Capability
  25. 25. Industry standard development tools 27
  26. 26. Skills & the Organization Bridge the Skills Gap with Visual COBOL • Address the skills challenge issue • Attract a new talent pool • Protect the value & importance of your core apps • Works with industry standard IDEs - Visual Studio and Eclipse • Consistent development experience for C/C++, .NET, Java and COBOL developers • Smart editing tools make cutting “new” COBOL code easier to learn than ever Benefits Capability
