IBM MQ Review

The most reliable product that we have ever used which run everywhere in the world

What is our primary use case?

Enterprise messaging with international clustering in 120 data centers in 82 countries around the world. 

How has it helped my organization?

It is the most reliable product that we have ever used.  

What is most valuable?

It runs everywhere, from the mainframe in the US to the PCs in the Gobi desert attached to an analog modem. 

What needs improvement?

There is not much room for improvement, except it could get a face lift with a modern marketing campaign. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

99.999 percent availability for less than a penny per message over the past 25 years.  IBM MQ is the cheapest software in the IBM software portfolio, and it is one of the best.

What other advice do I have?

IBM MQ is one of the oldest, most underrated products in history.
