IBM MQ Review
Provides reliable, guaranteed message delivery.

Valuable Features:

The most valuable feature of this product is that it provides guaranteed message delivery. This is important for us because we want to have guaranteed message delivery and integrity; we cannot lose that message.

Improvements to My Organization:

The reliability that it provides is the most beneficial aspect of this product for our organization.

Room for Improvement:

One thing that I'd like to see is that queue-sharing should not depend on DB2. It should have this feature by itself, instead of depending on DB2. 

In order to set up IBM MQ queue-sharing, DB2 data sharing is required in multiple LPARs. Thus, to make the implementation easy and straightforward, it will be nice if DB2 is not required for queue-sharing.

Stability Issues:

In regards to the stability of the product itself, it's pretty good. However, it depends on the configuration as well. Overall, the stability is good.

Scalability Issues:

Scalability is pretty good as well and on the mainframe, we can expand it. That way, we're looking to carry out queue sharing, on the mainframe as well.

Technical Support:

The technical support is fine. MQ is very predictable product and it's good.

Initial Setup:

I was involved in the initial setup, but not in this company; at a different company. I found that it was easy to install.

Other Advice:

This product is from IBM which is a very well-known company.

MQ is a reliable, easy to understand and install solution.

The most important criteria while selecting a vendor are that they should be well-known and the product's reliability. These are the main reasons as to why we chose IBM MQ.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
