What’s Trending?

At Rocket Software, one of our core principles is always “Putting Customer and Partners First.” This is more than just a slogan: we convene an annual event called the Rocket President’s Advisory Council (RPAC) where our leadership team meets with customers and partners from all over the world to hear about issues that keep them […]

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 […]

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, […]

Live from SHARE 2017: The Future Mainframe

One of the definitions of “providence” is “timely preparation for future eventualities.” Perhaps, then, it was fitting that I got to spend the last five days at the SHARE conference in the city of Providence, where one of the main areas of focus was security on mainframe computers. That’s hardly surprising in the wake of […]

Live from SHARE 2017: Big Cloud – Leveraging Cloud Storage from the Mainframe

We’ve been hearing about the cloud for years now. Lower cost. Better flexibility. Software-as-a-Service. Platform-as-a-Service. On-demand software development and test environments. All of us are familiar with these concepts by now. But something we haven’t heard much about is how the cloud might help mainframers. Have you considered how cloud storage might be a better option than traditional flash, DASD, […]

Live from SHARE 2017: Modern IMS Management

I’ve spent my entire career working in high-tech, and there’s one word I hear just about every day: modern. Whether it’s videogames, entertainment devices, mobile phones or complex computing systems, everyone wants to be on the cutting edge…and no one wants to be seen as being behind the times. Which brings me to what I […]

Rocket Data and Open Source Tools Power the Best Mainframe Yet

Last week, IBM made three important announcements. First, they announced the latest IBM mainframe: the IBM z14, designed to help businesses lead the way in offering trusted digital experiences. Then, IBM coupled that announcement with an announcement of the latest flagship IBM mainframe operating system, IBM z/OS Version 2 Release 3, an engine for digital […]

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. […]
