Talking Rocket.Build at NewCo 2017

I do a lot of jobs as CEO of Rocket Software, but one of my favorite things to do is sit down with tech professionals to discuss new ways to transform the software industry. I got to do that today when Rocket Software had the honor of hosting a session as part of the 2017 […]

A Fond Farewell to IBM InterConnect 2017

As I write this on the flight back east from Las Vegas, I look back at another successful IBM InterConnect. As an IBM business partner for over two decades, I’ve attended many conferences.  But this one was particularly exciting. This week in Las Vegas I had the opportunity to meet with key business and technical leaders […]

SHARE Community Mainframe Modernization

The Modern Mainframe

As CEO of Rocket Software I constantly think about modernization, which is why I’m in Silicon Valley this week for the SHARE conference – hosted by the world’s oldest enterprise IT user group.

Rocket: The Next Generation

Most of us still remember how hard it was to get our first job. How can I get a job with no experience? What will make me stand out from my peers? How do I know which job is the right one for me? I remember that uncertainty very well, which is why I’m excited […]

Customers Partners

Time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’…

In May we hosted the first Rocket President’s Advisory Council (RPAC) meeting in our headquarters near Boston. A small group of ten customers from around the world joined me and other Rocket leaders to help shape the future of our company.
