Study: Enterprises Hampered by Lack of Mainframe Developers

Compuware has published the results of a survey of more than 500 CIOs regarding their mainframe development staff. A majority, 56 percent, said that because mainframe teams are struggling to do more with less, they are having difficulty meeting the needs of the business. In addition, 69 percent agreed that IT students are turning away from mainframes because of a perceived lack of change. However, despite the looming shortage of mainframe developers, 46 percent of CIOs surveyed had no plans in place to address the lack of qualified staff.

“Businesses are supporting new technologies like mobility and cloud computing at record pace, forcing mainframe teams to contend with the added workload of quickly and successfully integrating new applications with legacy mainframe applications,” said Compuware’s Kris Manery. “This rise in mainframe development, coupled with a lack of new developers?a trend we call the ‘New Normal of Mainframe’?puts teams at risk of becoming less effective in supporting the applications that are critical to today’s world economy.”
