IBM MQ Review

It's easy to work with and has been stable.

What is most valuable?

Ease of use and ease of setup. I'm an admin type, and I can set things up from the command line, and I can set things up through a GUI. It's easy to work with.

How has it helped my organization?

We really haven't had any problems with it. I don't have too many positive things to say because usually, I'm in it when things break, and that's when I form my opinions. And I haven't really had to form too many opinions on MQ because it's been really stable.

What needs improvement?

Can't think of anything right now. There's one little part, but I cannot remember it's name.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Good stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Good scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

We've had good luck with the MQ people at IBM, in helping us resolve problems.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It helps to plan, and it helps to understand the product. Sometimes management doesn't understand the project, they just go, "Oh hey, it sounds nice. Let's use it." Then they try to slap it on things they don't understand.

What other advice do I have?

When choosing a vendor, stability and reliability are most important to me.
