WEBINAR REPORT: Rocket Software Q4 MultiValue Roadmap

Once again, I (Elkie Holland) was delighted to be allowed to join the Webinar – Rocket Software Q4 MultiValue Roadmap.   The format, as expected, was to recap how much has been done in each product this year and to whet the appetite and excite with a preview of what’s planned.  Slides whizzed past a rate of over 1 every minute. What I think it certainly did was show that Rocket Software have definitely been active during Covid!

Rocket talked about their “MultiValue” Technology Stack.

Rocket had a very busy year with the following releases:

February 2020 UniVerse 11.3.2
May 2020 wIntegrate 6.4.4
June 2020 SB/XA 6.5.6
July 2020 D3 10.3.2
September 2020 UniData 8.2.2
October 2020 UniObjects for Python (UOPY)

A whistle-stop recap of improvements was given about each release. Then an overview of Features Committed and then planned ideas for 2021. 

As Committed and Planned is a “living document”, it would be unfair of me to list them.  Plus there was so much not even my shorthand was fast enough to document it all accurately.  Enough to say that there's plenty to look forward to.

The Webinar ended with a highlight on FREE GOODIES from Rocket.  These include:

UniObjects for Python (UOPY)
