IBM MQ Cons

the level of training as well as product marketing for this product are not that great. You rarely find a good training institute that provides training. Many of the architects in several organization are neither aware of the product nor interested in using it. IBM should provide good training on products like this.

I believe there is too much code to be done in order to handle the elements that you develop.
I believe the stability of the product has decreased since we began using it initially.

SonicMQ CAA (continuous availability architecture) functionality on auto failover and data persistence should be made available without a shared drive, as it exists in multi-instance queue managers.
