In Celebration of Computer Programmers

Posted by on Thursday, 12 December, 2013

In celebration of Computer Science Education Week, we tip our hat to our programmers whose expertise and creativity keep our products evolving and responsive to our customers’ needs.  We also salute all programmers that constantly strive to keep their organizations running smoothly by developing new applications or finding innovative ways to adapt current software to meet their needs.

The importance of programming skills is in the spotlight this week with the Hour of Code initiative where educators, celebrities, tech gurus and business owners alike join forces to promote computer science education.  The campaign’s promotional video has received almost 1.7 million views.

education for computer programmers is lackingCode.org reports that computer programming jobs are growing at twice the national average and that there will be more 1,000,000 more jobs than students in 2020.  In a rocky job market, computer science offers a great opportunity for students who have the passion to pursue it as a career.

Our programmers work hard and they love the challenge of finding new ways to improve our products. Through initiatives such as the Hour of Code promotion and Computer Science Education Week, we hope that more students are encouraged to explore the world of computer programming.

You can learn more about Hour of Code and how you can help. You can also find tutorials and resources that take students of all ages beyond basic programming to explore different computer languages and app development.  We hope you’ll sit down with the kids in your life and explore Code.org.

 For years we’ve received emails, phone calls, and comments at trade shows about how much our customers appreciate our support team, and we’re always so glad to hear that.  Our dual missions at Linoma Software is to develop (and enhance) the best possible products and to provide exceptional support for those products.

Our core support team is the first to arrive* and the last to leave each day, and between scheduled trainings, emails, online chats and phone calls, they patiently work through any questions a customer may have, and happily pass along suggestions for enhancements to our development team.

We invite you to watch this video, and if you’ve had a good experience with someone from our support team, please let us know.  You can leave a comment below,  email us, call us, or write a quick note on LinkedIn.  We could even make you a video star!

We love patting our support folks on the back for a job well done, and thank you for your rave reviews.

**Ok, the developers are here early and stay late, too!  Sometimes really late!

Linoma Software Celebrates Growth in 2011

Posted by on Monday, 6 February, 2012

As we kick off 2012 with several major product enhancements we’ll be publicizing soon, I’d also like to take a minute to reflect on the record year Linoma Software had in 2011, with over 40% growth in new business.


Bob Luebbe Chief Architect at Linoma Software

Bob recently presented at several East Coast Users Groups, including here at the Long Island System Users Group.

Many factors contributed to our banner performance.  For one, meeting compliance requirements for data privacy and security is a huge issue for most organizations, so we have been working hard to help meet these challenges.

We have made significant R&D investments over the past 12 months in our products, including major enhancements to our GoAnywhere™ managed file transfer solutions, as well as new features for our Crypto Complete™ encryption product.

We also gained many new customers outside of the United States as we have partnered with several new international resellers for our products, and seen increased sales performance from our established distributors.  Data security is a worldwide challenge that has no borders.

Another factor in our growth has to do with the openness of our GoAnywhere products, which allows them to run on a variety of platforms including IBM i, Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX.  This gives our customers a choice on the operating system environment that best meets their needs.

For a more detailed announcement about Linoma Software’s sales growth in 2011, you can read our press release.

We’ve enjoyed talking with many of you over the last year.  If you are coming to any of the trade shows that we’ll be exhibiting at this year, please stop by and say hello.  Otherwise, give us a call or email if you have any questions or comments about our solutions.

We sincerely appreciate the support of our loyal customers and look forward to working with you this year. If you’re not yet a customer, we hope to talk with you soon about how we can help you solve any data automation or security challenges in 2012.

We’re ramping up our activity on various social networks, so we also hope you’ll connect with us there.

Linoma wishes you a successful 2012!
