SHARE Providence 2017: That’s a Wrap!

Building and fostering relationships is central to what we do here at Rocket. After another inspiring and productive SHARE conference, I’m reminded that those relationships—whether it’s with our customers, with our partners, with industry groups (like SHARE), or between Rocketeers—make our work here special on a personal, as well as a business, level. For example, […]

The Union of the Snake: z/OS meets Anaconda

It’s no secret that performing analytics where the data is created and lives is the best solution. That’s because analytics can be done natively on the mainframe rather than requiring users to export data, crunch the numbers, and then return them to the main system. But mainframes were originally built to be programmed in COBOL […]

Bye bye, version-control hell: announcing Git for z/OS

If you’re an engineer or programmer, you’ve no doubt experienced the chaos and confusion of multiple people working on the same piece of code at the same time.

Live from IBM World of Watson: imagine the possibilities

Cognitive computing isn’t exactly new. Or, at least the idea of it isn’t. Anyone who watched Star Wars remembers a world full of robots that could talk and interact with humans just as easily as people could communicate with each other. Of course, we’ve been waiting for sentient computers – not to mention flying cars […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: How Cognitive Computing Is Changing Our World

This week at World of Watson IBM is giving the world a sneak peek into the future of cognitive computing. It’s made me think about how artificial intelligence can transform our world – and how it’s already doing so. Far from the hostile AI of movies like Terminator and The Matrix, Watson illustrates how computer […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: Giving ETL the Viking Funeral it Deserves

For a non-gambler, I seem to spend a lot of time in Las Vegas. But instead of hitting the roulette table, this week I’m immersed in IBM’s vision for the future of cognitive computing here at World of Watson. Why is this so exciting to me? The short answer is that this event is at […]
