Futurum’s Steven Dickens provides his take on an interesting week in the mainframe space. Congressman Matt Cartwright (D-PA-08) looks to get support for the Grace Hopper Code for Us Act in the House to fund higher ed training for IT jobs and addressing the shortage of professionals with a background in older coding languages needed to maintain and modernize critical government IT systems. Micro Focus plays a significant role in that initiative, and Broadcom looks to transform the mainframe landscape through Open Source with The Linux Foundation, Open Mainframe Project. Very interesting times ahead for the mainframe industry.
