It allows us to do real-time claims processing through a non-host platform into the host platform.
A better user interface; right now, it's technician dependent, so it's a tech support role. It would be nice if we could provide better interfaces to see the queues, the channels and how they're used, and the queue depths.
We've been using it for 25-30 years.
It is solid. We have no stability problems with MQ.
It's solid, and it scales.
I personally have not used technical support. As a corporation, we have, and it is solid.

The most important criteria for me when selecting a vendor to work with is: Is it a partner or is it someone that's just looking to get paid?
We are not using MQ to connect across cloud, mobile, and devices as part of the internet of things, so much. It's more for internal.
The barrier to success is that I haven't had a business need to use MQ. We use DataPower instead.
