Summary
  • Development and maintenance savings of using fourth generation languages (4GLs) for civil service applications may be offset because 4GLs require up to 4 times more CPU power, and more specialist and support staff. The Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) issues a report on the effect of using 4GLs, principally ICL's Quickbuild, a database with report, query, and application generators. The CCTA report recommends the use of 4GLs to minimize staff shortages and to cut the application backlog, in spite of increased government expenditures which are a direct result of the increased use of 4GLs. This report is part of a larger, 5-year study on resource requirements and computer funds allocations, which will establish an approach for managing government computing. It recommends "that capacity planning (insuring that enough computer resources are available to meet the required workload) should be introduced" and that 4GLs be used especially for new projects.
