IBM MQ Review

It is easy to set up and has good instrumentation

What is our primary use case?

IBM MQ is used heavily in all of the companies I have worked for, mostly in the financial industry. It is easy to set up and has good instrumentation.

How has it helped my organization?

The product was already installed which is not surprising as it was first published around 1993.

What is most valuable?

To be able to programmatically send information stored in 'messages' and send them securely, as well as the ability to check their contents and statistics when things go wrong.

What needs improvement?

  • Better testing by the supplier is needed
  • Ability to send to a group of queues without the need to use pubsub and without the need to write one's own programmes.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
