A commitment to IBM Z mainframes
A 25+ year history of innovation
Rocket got its start (launched!) on April 16, 1990, when founder Andy Youniss sat down to write the first lines of code for a new product that made it safe to run SQL against IBM® Db2® online data—a product that we continue to develop today.
While Rocket may be a lot bigger today, with more than 15,500 customers and 10 million users globally, we’ve never lost our focus on developing tools that help companies running IBM mainframes get the most out of their investments.
Many of the world’s biggest organizations, from insurance companies and investment banks to healthcare companies and federal, state, and local governments, trust Rocket® mainframe solutions to manage their critical infrastructure and data, as well as extend those assets to take advantage of cloud, mobile, analytics, and other current innovations. Our unique, enduring partnership with IBM helps put us at the forefront of innovation on the IBM® Z platform, and our mainframe R&D investment increases by double digits every year.
