This year, a record-breaking number of Rocket employees were named as 2020 IBM Champions—13 to be exact. To celebrate our ongoing partnership with IBM, and our dedication to innovation, legacy technologies and legendary results, we want to highlight them. 

Over the next weeks, we will count down to IBM THINK with each of the 2020 Champions, and celebrate what we love about our partnership with IBM! 

Name: Patric Becker

Title: Managing Director

Length of time at Rocket Software: 3 years 2 months

What it means to be an IBM Champion: It’s an honor to be recognized as an individual contributing to IBM customer success. However, there’s almost always a team of Rocketeers involved, as customer success is not related to a single person only.

What I love about IBM: IBM Research invents things that matter – to the world.


What I love about the IBM/Rocket Software partnership: We work together as one worldwide team to ultimately deliver solutions that our customers need.

How do IBM products improve everyday lives? Counter question: Imagine what would happen if all mainframes would be switched off. Think of ATMs, banking or airline bookings…

Favorite IBM product: IBM Db2 for z/OS

Favorite IBM project: IBM Research in Healthcare to explore and develop new methodologies and improve processes for a broad range of health care challenges.
