COBOL was basically for Commercial Use. But PL1 is something like

PL1 = COBOL + FORTRAN + ASSEMBLER.

PL1 COMBINES BETTER FEATURES OF COBOL AND FORTRAN AND ITS LANGUAGE FOR COMMERCIAL & SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS.

COBOL IS GOOD IN TERMS OF INPUT/OUTPUT ADVANTAGES.

AND PL1 COMBINES IT WITH PROCESSING ADVANTAGES OF FORTRAN & ASM.

PL/1 is Scientific Language which supports the Pointer Concept which allows you to create linked Lists and utilize the better prospects of it.

Most Often this Developer has ability to control the memory very easily.
Which is definetly useful in different business scienarios.

Cheers,
