At the recent UK U2 University 2012 in Chester, it was refreshing to hear how Rocket not only listen to the ISVs and users but also keep their eye on what the industry as a whole is saying that it needs and wants. Let's see how Rocket is addressing Gardner's Top 10 CIO Technology priorites for 2012 :
FROM GARTNER: FROM ROCKET:

It's great to see Rocket U2 re addressing and focussing on ensuring that they are inline with what the market is saying it wants.
