Rocket / Mainstar

Rocket Software is a global software development firm that builds and services enterprise infrastructure products for the world’s leading OEMs, networks and software companies and enterprises. The company’s products complement and extend strategic infrastructure in the areas of: application modernization, business intelligence, compliance and security, consumer productivity, database servers, database tools, file transfer, mainframe productivity, network management, publishing and search, SOA and integration, storage management, terminal emulation, and text mining. Rocket is engaged in business and technology partnerships with IBM, EMC, RSA (the security division of EMC), HP Enterprise Services, Avaya, Motorola, and many others. Rocket Software is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts, USA.

Rocket was founded in 1990 with an initial focus on developing and delivering software solutions to IBM mainframe customers deploying IBM DB2. Within the first five years, Rocket licensed all of its intellectual property to IBM, and all of its products were rebranded and licensed to enterprises through IBM’s worldwide sales channel. In parallel with a significant R&D investment in developing software products, Rocket began a series of strategic acquisitions in 2000 and now has well over 100 software products that are licensed both through OEM partners and ISVs, and via direct sales through Rocket’s branded sales channels.

Rocket values the technical skills and deep domain expertise of the employees at the companies we acquire. We endeavor to keep the teams intact and entrust them to manage and expand the product lines that they initially created. This philosophy has allowed Rocket to grow to more than 700 employees around the world, including Eastern and Western Europe, Australia, Asia and North America.
