Why Do Unemployment Sites Crash and Not Netflix?
Accelerate Your Digital Modernization Project Today
Russell Brandom wrote an article in April 28, 2020 titled The Problem with COBOL
He posed the question: Why Do Unemployment Sites Crash and Not Netflix? His stated position is that problems with old legacy code can run for years with only subtle issues, but when you have a sudden and unprecedented spike in traffic, systems can’t scale like a company such as Netflix.
Why can’t scale be achieved?
The answer is technical debt that locks a company into long past processes that don’t fit the needs of businesses in 2021 and beyond. Over two decades of projects, approximately 80% is dead, redundant and technical code.
Working with a team of experts who modernize legacy COBOL code (and many more languages) around the world, I’m often asked what questions should be asked by a leader in your position when undertaking a Legacy Code Modernization project. Is your company keeping up with the vital digitization and modernization of your Legacy Code? Do you know the challenges your company could face if this were not prioritized?
