That is so true! My employers are attempting to develop a 'service oriented architecture' across the organisation, and it's like the layers of an onion: shiny RIA and mobile clients/UIs (2010's tech), then a lot of Java and webservices (2000's tech, buffed up by IBM), then as you dig deeper you find the C++ code from the 1980s and 1990s, and then at the bottom it's all still COBOL.
