MQ Administrator at a government with 501-1,000 employees
Apr 24 2017

What is most valuable?

The product has a small footprint on our system. We don't use a lot of clients. They're very knowledgeable of MQ, which we use. It's what we use for monitoring our MQ system, so the features that they provide are just really, really good.

How has it helped my organization?

The monitoring that's available through their system alerts us early on to problems, so we're able to react quickly to the problems that come.

What needs improvement?

The product itself is very sound and Avada has done a great job of anticipating customer needs and keeping up with new MQ functionality. However, one area where they could improve is with their documentation. Some sections are not up to date... more»

Middleware Admin at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
Jan 26 2017

What is most valuable?

The administration piece makes it very easy to do MQ administration. It gives us a lot more flexibility and capabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

One way it's helped the business is how you're able to empower MQ users, without your administrators, to be able to do different types of processes in the environment. It has user group privileges that allow you to set up security roles in... more»

What needs improvement?

Some of the graphics in the interface could be improved. It's pretty basic. Some interfaces are not up to what you're used to seeing on other, more Windows-like tools. I don't think it's a bad thing, but that might be an area where I would... more»

What is most valuable?

Some of the most valuable features we use include group and role management functions. These allow us to provision access to various development and support groups across the middleware estate. This provides a more transparent view into our... more»

How has it helped my organization?

With the use of the packaged MQ explorer eclipse thick client, there was a significant amount of time spent configuring each local installation and making sure environmental settings were individually validated to provision each client's... more»

What needs improvement?

We are still working with the FTE/MFT subscription monitoring and reporting functionality. That is an area in which we would like to see further development taking place.

What is most valuable?

Administration, Monitoring, and Delegation are the most valuable features of the solution. * Administration: It provides a centralized audit trail of all the infrastructure changes. * Monitoring: It gives the ability to integrate with my... more»

How has it helped my organization?

An offsite team performs a daily infrastructure health check using Infrared360 and sends reports to the technical/management teams. This fulfills an important security requirement within our organization.

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be sexier and more ergonomic. The competing products have similar problems.

What do you think of Avada Software Infrared360?

Improvements to My Organization The ability for development teams to have access to their MQ queues has freed us up as administrators to do things other than chase down an application’s message for research purposes. • Valuable Features - Monitoring that ties into our incident management system - Visibility of the MQ environment to non-MQ personnel • Room for Improvement The UI can be cumbersome - but we are still using the Viper interface and we have not had the time to check out the Alloy interface which is supposed to be much improved. • Stability Issues Not really, other than minor memory leaks. But a monthly cycling of the server is usually all that is required (which we have to do for patching anyways). • Scalability Issues We have not really pushed the...

What is Avada Software Infrared360?

Avada Software specializes in Enterprise Middleware solutions. Founded by some pioneers in SOA, MQ and J2EE technology, Avada’s Flagship product, Infrared360, is a holistic & innovative private cloud enabled portal providing self-service administration, monitoring, load testing, auditing & statistical reporting for Enterprise Middleware including IBM’s middleware stack of MQ, IIB (message broker), WAS, and Datapower, as well as other applications servers such as  JBoss, TC Server, Weblogic, and other messaging technologies such as Tibco EMS and Kafka*.

Accessed via any web browser on any device, Infrared360 is a single web application, yet scales to 2500+ endpoints without deploying anything (no agents, no scripts) to those endpoints.

Using trusted ‘spaces’ and delegated visibility and control, the portal uniquely provides different business units or even different application users virtual ‘spaces’ in which to work.  Within those spaces are only the objects and resources the user has been granted visibility.  Role policy dictates permissions on those resources.

It is the ONLY Enterprise Messaging Solution with a built in SOA engine that lets you leverage internal and external services for managing and correcting problems within your middleware messaging environment.
