Join us for deep technical content and training at IBM TechU

For more than 25 years, Rocket Software has been a trusted, strategic IBM partner. With our shared goal of modernizing legacy systems, we’ve collaborated on solutions and products for Z and Power Systems. In 2020, we also had a record number of IBM Champions, representing our expertise in data, AI, and IBM Z. This was a historic achievement and an affirmation of the skills and knowledge that Rocketeers bring to our clients and partners in the IBM world. 

These experts, along with other Rocketeers, will be participating in this year’s IBM TechU virtual training event. From October 27 to 29, Rocketeers will be hosting and participating in ten sessions. Topics range from CICS configuration management to a Women in Tech panel moderated by Saghi Amirsoleymani, Vice President, System Z WW.
