FinTech, Mainframes and Open Source: The Perfect Trio

It’s not an exaggeration to say that everyone who works in the financial sector interacts with a mainframe at some point during their day. That may be surprising to most people, but the reality is that banking is dominated by large, powerful computers that can provide unprecedented security while making billions of calculations a day. […]

Mainframe Open Source

Open Sesame!

It’s not exactly news to anyone that Rocket loves the IBM mainframe. Same goes for me. I started my career working on mainframe computers, and for nearly three decades I’ve run Rocket with the goal of solving hard, technical problems for IBM mainframe customers. I’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but in […]

Mainframe Open Source

The Mainframe is Now Open

Today is a big day. Not just for Rocket, but for everyone in the global mainframe community. A few hours ago we announced the launch of Zowe (pronounced ZOH-ee), the first-ever open community for z/OS. This is a joint effort between three major players in the mainframe space – IBM, CA and Rocket – as […]

Congratulations to Joe Sacco for his Award-Winning Session at SHARE Sacramento!

As anyone who’s ever been to SHARE can tell you, the conference is usually a bit of a whirlwind. Keynotes, educational sessions, networking events, exploring the convention floor ­– there’s a lot to take in. That’s what makes it so impressive when a presentation stands out, whether for its display of innovative thinking or its […]

IBM Champions Community Partners

Congratulations to Our 2018 IBM Champions!

Day in and day out, Rocketeers inspire me with their brilliance, creativity, and dedication. It’s not just me they’re impressing, though—it’s also our customers, our partners, and our communities. Whether it’s Ellucian naming Rocket as its Growth Partner of the Year or Rocket® D3 taking home DBTA’s Reader’s Choice Award for Best MultiValue Database, Rocketeers […]

Rocket.Build 2017 Events Rocket.Build

Ready, Set, Build

There are certain parts of my job I like more than others, but in recent years our annual Rocket.Build development contest – which starts tonight in our corporate headquarters in Waltham – has become my favorite event here at Rocket. This year we moved it from December to October, so this feels like an early […]

DBTA Award 2017 MultiValue

This Never Gets Old…Rocket D3 Voted Best MultiValue Database

As Frank Sinatra once crooned, “Love is lovelier the second time around/Just as wonderful with both feet on the ground.” And while he probably wasn’t singing about technology, it’s a sentiment that’s just as applicable in the world of MultiValue software. It’s always nice to be recognized for excellence, but it’s even more gratifying when […]

The IBM z14 launch reminds me why I’m proud to be a Rocketeer and a mainframer

By now, I assume that you’ve heard about IBM’s next generation mainframe: the IBM z14. I can assume that because this launch has been a really big deal—as in, headline news big deal. Already coverage from outlets like Wired and CNBC (not your typical mainframe-focused publications) has led to this launch becoming a trending topic. […]

Building companies that last

I spend quite a bit of time working with college students, from our summer interns to participants in IBM’s Master the Mainframe contest. It’s a good feeling because I remember all of the experienced programmers and engineers that shared their expertise with me when I was just starting out. Now it’s my time to help […]
