Build future talent and core IT skills needed to support your business.

Many organizations have built their business on the power and portability of the COBOL language. Most core business applications are written in COBOL, but as existing programmers retire, finding new skills to maintain and modernize these systems is often difficult. To stay competitive, organizations must replenish these core skills as they modernize for the future.

To meet this challenge, a new approach is needed—a path and program to skills development, collaboration, and engagement by academic, corporate, and industry leaders. This is where the Micro Focus Academic Alliance comes in.
