IT-Director.com | Cut up your mainframe apps and make them services: "A couple of statistics that reinforce the idea that the mainframe is here to stay: there are some 200,000,000,000 lines of Cobol code plus PLI, Fortran and Assembly currently running on mainframes, and 5 billion lines of new Cobol code are still being written each year. This code is not going away because rewriting an application is believed to be five times more expensive than reusing existing applications."
