Fireside Chat: The Role of COBOL in the Global Enterprise

Presented by

Dr. Cameron Seay, Ph.D., Adjunct Instructor, East Carolina University & Jeff Cherrington, VP, Product Management, ASG

About this talk

For over 60 years, COBOL has been the foundational computer programming language for large enterprises and government agencies that run business-critical applications on the mainframe. While COBOL will continue to be essential in the long term for these organizations, most companies and agencies are in desperate need of COBOL programmers, as became more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic. In their fireside chat, Dr. Cameron Seay, enterprise systems thought leader and adjunct professor at East Carolina University, will join Jeff Cherrington, VP of Product Management at ASG, to discuss the role of COBOL in the global enterprise, the opportunities available to next-generation technology professionals, and how organizations and education systems can better support educational and professional paths into mainframe application development.
