Reviewer397 says in an IBM MQ review
Principal Solution Specialist at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I will say that, okay, we are coming from a long history as an IT company, and we have almost done queuing systems with other solutions. Moving from that implementation to something that is out-of-the-box, and the rave reviews, it was a great asset already. We didn’t have to worry about all the specific configuration, or installation of our own queue, and queuing system, and the brokers, and so on. It was some things a little bit out-of-the-box, that's why we like it. View full review »

Upendra Gughane says in an Aurea CX Messenger review
IT Analyst at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
* Aurea has bundled well-known and widely used technologies like XSLT, JavaScript, XSD, WSDL, etc., which make programmers life easier as there is no need to learn any tool specific coding. * Build and deployment are really easy. * SDM: User-friendly tool which allows for a seamless approach to performing hotfixes, if required. * Environment Setup: Very easy to create a complete environment from scratch. Just to give example on my project, we were able to build a production environment in just 35 minutes after software installation and ready script. * Custom Java service: Allows you to write your own code to fulfill any given requirement that Java can support. This is a very useful feature. View full review »
Margus Nairis says in an Aurea CX Messenger review
ENK lead Developer (Java) at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees
* MQ: I liked that the transport layer was separated from the business (ESB) layer. * ESB: Provides all kind of possibilities to resolve business needs. A lot of ready to use services plus custom Java services. I used a lot of them all. * SDM: Very helpful feature for setting up or updating the whole system for as many servers and environments as you needed. Liked this feature a lot and am missing it.

Keith Sohl says in a RabbitMQ review
Senior Developer/Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
RabbitMQ is a solid, widely-used messaging system with a low cost-of-ownership. It is open, but with commercial support potentially available from Pivotal if required. (We have never needed it.) There is also a strong online user community. One crucial feature was guaranteed messaging. We needed a solution that we could trust to not lose data. Its built-in clustering capability allowed us to configure it as a highly available message broker, so that we can have confidence in the resilience of our architecture. It can be scaled as well, although we have not tested this. After almost two years' usage in our production environment, I am impressed by how stable the platform is - even when running on Windows Server 2012. Sure, we have had to tweak our set-up here and there as we have learned a few operational lessons along the way but overall it is very good. View full review »
