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 […]

Rocket Gives Back to the Community – Community Day 2017

  I have been looking forward to Rocket Community Day all year long. Since joining Rocket 11 months ago, I’ve heard many things about this favorite annual volunteer event; stories of coworkers crawling into soup kitchen ovens, others who worked out retired greyhounds, or decorated children’s hospital floors, and some who cried through 5 hours […]

Putting our values to work at the inaugural President’s Advisory Council

Just about every company has some sort of company values statement in place, but it can be difficult to transform aspirational  words into day-to-day operations. That’s why the Rocket leadership team spends so much time figuring out how to make our mission ring true. One of our key values reads “Putting Customers and Partners First.” […]

The Rocket Band

This is your song…

It’s hard to believe that it’s only the second day of InterConnect. So much is going on here that it feels like the Rocket team has already been here for weeks! There’s so much to talk about (you can read about it from the Rocketeers who are blogging and tweeting from the expo floor, sessions, […]

Rocket Software is making a difference in our community

As we wrap up our annual Leadership Summit, we decided to once again make the final day something really special by encouraging our participants to get out in the community and volunteer. Whether they were scrubbing floors, mentoring young adults, or cleaning out horse paddocks (seriously!), more than 300 Rocketeers–and 100 of their significant others–from […]

Rocket Band Practice

The Rocket Band is bigger and badder than ever!

It’s no secret that music is a big part of our Rocket culture. From our custom Rocketcaster guitars built by our own Steve Bice to the music gear in our Executive Briefing Center in Waltham to informal jam sessions to gigs at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, we just like to play music. […]

Rocket at 25: A Magic Month For Rocket

If there’s one thing I can say after 25 years of running Rocket is that we don’t have many slow months. Rocketeers are always busy building new products, improving existing ones, working with our customers and partners to deliver great solutions, and planning for our future together. But the last 30 days are the busiest […]

Team Rocket rides again

This past Saturday, the Rocket cycling team took part in the Rodman Ride for Kids, an annual 25, 50, and 100-mile noncompetitive cycling tour that helps raise money for youth-focused social-service organizations that support at-risk children in Massachusetts. This is the 25th anniversary of the Rodman Ride, which provides beautiful symmetry for Rocket’s 25th anniversary! Team […]

Live from SHARE: reflections on the past week

As I get on a plane back home to Texas, I’m still trying to process everything I learned and saw this week at SHARE (www.share.org). I’ve been attending SHARE conferences for many years, and I’m always amazed by the innovations that the mainframe community makes. So what were my major takeaways from SHARE this week? […]
