Mainframes are at the heart of our business
A 25+ year commitment
We’ve been developing for IBM® z Systems® mainframes since day one, and mainframes continue to be at the heart of what Rocket® does. More than half of our business comes from tools and solutions that help IBM mainframe customers get the most out of their technology investments—both through Rocket-branded products as well as solutions developed in partnership with IBM.
Our investments in mainframe innovation increase by double digits every year. That commitment extends to ensuring we have the latest IBM technology in our data centers (we took delivery of our first IBM z13 the first week they were available). We are also home to the storage systems from IBM, EMC and Hitachi that are commonly used by z Systems customers, allowing us to develop tools for the larger ecosystem. And with 800+ developers in 20 labs throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, we continue to hire some of the best and brightest mainframe developers around the world, as well as help to nurture the next generation of mainframe professionals.
