What is most valuable?

For MQ, the most valuable feature is our ability to connect our distributed systems back to the mainframe, and pull our legacy data out of the mainframe and bring it down into a modern Java front end.

How has it helped my organization?

It's easy to install and it's bulletproof. We never have an issue with it. The upgrades are easy and IBM support is fantastic.

What needs improvement?

Honestly, the features they just recently released are what I wanted to see. Like I mentioned elsewhere, the appliance device was fantastic. It's MQ in a box, and you just plug it right into the network. I'd like to see improvements around... more»

Due to the nature of my use case, performance and security were of the highest priority and were the main reason I chose RabbitMQ messaging frameworks. Over time, the most useful feature became the ability to create durable queues, which increased reliability and also boosted... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvements in fluent configuration. I'd also like to see more support for code-first environment configuration. We do a lot of this stuff as part of our deployment process via command line scripts, but I'd rather have a specific API to target rabbitmq.config and rabbitmq-env.config so that configuration could scale with my environments more... more»
