The newly launched service comes at a time when the global COVID-19 pandemic is having a negative impact on many critical government computer systems. The expert team at Sparq Worldwide argue computer systems should work, remain nimble and be able to respond to an influx of demand.

COBOL is an outdated programming language that is no longer installed, but it is still used by outdated, legacy computer systems. As it is no longer used, technicians that work with COBOL can charge up to $400 per hour.

Sparq Worldwide believes governments could save money in the long-term by investing in agile and lean approaches to solve critical needs. If governments were free of red tape and bureaucracy, they could operate like start-up companies – decisively, nimble, and adaptable to change.

Clients of Sparq Worldwide benefit from the quick and responsive systems implemented by the company. This is useful for both everyday operations and in times of crisis. Sparq Worldwide and its expert team pride themselves on being able to help state governments quickly evolve during critical moments to ensure the needs of the people are met.

The company differentiates itself from the competition by focusing on results. It does this by utilizing rapid development techniques, continuous delivery, automation, and lean processes. The expert team have experience of consolidating legacy systems to simplify them, while also making them agile.

A company spokesperson said: “COBOL as a programming language is essentially dead – it is only found on out of date, legacy systems, and it is expensive to repair. The solution that we at Sparq Worldwide are presenting overcomes all these issues. We know how to re-build and re-architect legacy systems, we know how to simplify complex, archaic systems – we can make your old system new again.”

“There is a global pandemic happening around the world right now, and some governments are having to deal with critical systems failures on top of everything else,” they added.
