IBM MQ Review

Secure, fast, and easy to work with


What is most valuable?

  • Secure
  • Safe
  • Very fast

It's a very good product. Very easy to work with.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using IBM MQ for about nine years. We have many projects with it in many places in Kuwait.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no issues with the stability of the solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't had any issues with the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I only contacted technical support when I wanted to upgrade Windows Server. It's not that easy to move. I had Windows 2008, and I wanted to go to Windows 2012 or '16. You have to reinstall, or there was a solution somebody told me about and that made life easier.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. On the AS/400, setup takes about an hour.

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

Whatever the price is, it's worth it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it to other people. When somebody wants to do colocation with us, we force them to buy IBM MQ.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
