"Market leader in Middleware Technology "

What do you like best?

IBM MQ is a proprietary software from IBM. We have purchased the Enterprise edition in which you can create as many new queue managers and connections you want. The best part about it is that is the safest option for a message delivery system. It offers you non- repudiation, integrity of the message, checksum and all this is happening at wire speed for literally millions of transactions each day. The software has a bit of learning curve but once you fully understand the functionality, you realise how powerful, stable and fast it is compared to any other competitive products. IBM MQ is the best software available in the market for setting up a new PUB-SUB model or a full & partial repositories clustering model or even a one to one connection queue manager model. I have never seen better resource management that IBM MQ does in the clustering.

What do you dislike?

Well, no complaints from the software as such. But, IBM support team takes a lot of time to respond if you raise a problem ticket to them. We have to open a SEV 1 call bridge to get them on call and that support is very expensive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working on IBM MQ for more than 5 years now. We have delivered so many projects where the new platform was IBM MQ and they have been going on for ages without any issues, just regular health checks on queue managers and channel connections between them. It integrates so smoothly with IBM DataPower and IBM Message Broker which makes the transportation, orchestration and rendering of the messages so easy to implement.

"IBM MQ Product"

What do you like best?

IBM MQ is very easy to use and helps the business to reduce the complexities by connecting applications through channels and retrieving messages through queues. The cluster facility helps in managing the MQ objects anywhere in the cluster. Easy administration and Easy for the business to send the data.

What do you dislike?

There are no findings for me to let you know about dislikes but in my experience when I have done the MQ for z/OS migration from V 7.1 to V 9 we faced an issues with the application on the distributed side where they were using the MQ version as V 7.0.1. The SVRCONN channel on the Z/OS side connects to distributed side application and the clients were not compatible. However the application team have written a code to mitigate the issue after a long brainstorming sessions about the issue. IBM can help such customers by providing an alternatives for establishing connections through PTFs on the z/OS side and patches on the distributed client side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this product where any one are looking for sending the data from one system to another as MQ would take care of the data conversion. It might help you to reduce the system complexities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The issues solved using the IBM MQ is that applications are able to send data to each other by reducing the complexities of network.

"MQ as an Heterogeneous Enterprise Integration Asset"

What do you like best?

The flexibility, feature set, and widespread use of the product in the industry has allowed it to be a defacto standard in this technology.

What do you dislike?

Maintaining technical relevance as an administrator is becoming difficult with the amalgamated peripheral technologies being added to the base product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

MQ is not freeware, but as a result, it is well supported, well designed, technically superior to most competing products. It requires considerable administrative attention, but the benefits outweigh the complexity requirements.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Multi-agency / Military service interoperability and integration between messaging partners who do not have a singe hierarchical management structure.

"MQ still does an awesome job getting your transactional data where it needs to go, exactly once!"

What do you like best?

Full backward compatability in a product that is evolving to meet customer needs in the connected cloud world.

What do you dislike?

Competitive analysis of products that aren't even trying to provide anything like each other, but someone shouts out that product 1 is 5 times faster than product 2, but doesn't say that the quality of service was different, or product 1 was fully tuned by company specialists, but product 2 was a default install out of the box on a laptop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

High performance reliable once and once only delivery of business critical messages across a distributed messaging mesh. The business can use the delivery mesh to ensure delivery of the ordering and billing messages, and therefore doesn't need to build complex and expensive error recovery code into the application layer.

"MQ Possibility"

What do you like best?

When we looked into using MQ with our B2B Integrator setup, we really liked the speed and throughput it would give us over our traditional file system-based transfer methods. The replay-ability was great and we were really excited about the possiblity of using it.

What do you dislike?

We do a lot of FIFO (98 % of data) and we were unable to get the customer isolation we wanted using MQ and the built in SI FIFO queues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting rid of the use of file systems for transferring data back and forth.

"Stable message queuing system"

What do you like best?

MQ and message queuing is not the most sexy of applications. Few will have a need for it, but when you do, you'll realise how critical this can be. If you build a system that needs to support hundreds/thousands of transactions per hour, the biggest worry is to lose one. If your servers can't process these transactions fast enough, this is bound to happen. This is where MQ fits in. Instead of directly processing your transactions, you store it in MQ instead, and have your processing engine read from the queue instead. This not only prevents losing transactions, it also removes the need to always throw more cpu to handle extra transaction loads, by being able to process them asynchronously, you can continue to process transactions at a constant rate. Also, if any piece of software crashes/fails, you can feel secure in knowing you arenot losing anything while you remedy the problem.

What do you dislike?

MQ is not a simple system to figure out, proper installation and configuration can take some time, especially if you don't have any experience. But I wouldn't let that scare you away, the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to run an integrated transactional system, this tool needs to be part of your solution. Your systems might be working today as is, but the day your systems won't be able to handle the volume, you'll kick your self fonot doing so. Spare yourself the headaches and include MQ in your architecture.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for all our Sap integration, and is central to running our business. We have multiple ordering platforms (web,EDI, Siebel, fax), that all need to exchange information with Sap.. As an example, a sales order comes in and is saved to a queue. A middleware will pick up the order from the queue, do some data manipulation and send the order to sap. Sap will send an order confirmation to the queue which the middleware will pick up and send to the ordering platform. The order is also sent to the warehouse for processing, and delivery details are sent to the ordering platform via MQ again. This process goes on for all steps of the sales order proces.

"IBM MFT is good for our use case"

What do you like best?

MQ provides a decent solution for file transfers. Transfers are generally fast.

What do you dislike?

MFT seems like a bit of an after thought at times. There are a not a lot of exciting features for MFT announced. We have had issues with bugs and transfers not going through but there doesn't seem to be logs written.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to move many large files across different platforms, data centers, and storage nodes. IBM MQ helps us to do this quickly and securely.

"More than messages and queues"

What do you like best?

MQ can be run on every operating system there is and allows you to send messages or data to anywhere else. It lets you send to multiple destinations too or can be used for publish and subscribe, you can even send to the cloud. Messages can be persistent so they are saved over a system crash.

What do you dislike?

MQ means you have to connect to a queue and then send so if you only send one message thats two steps but if you want to send a lot of data it is easy to just keep sending.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can use it with cloud now :-)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending messages or data reliably from many places to one or many places.

"VEry reliable"

What do you like best?

We use MQ to transfer hundreds of millions of messages reliably over zOs, Unix/linux and windows. 100+ application areas use MQ for both app to app messaging and for db2 replication. We have been using MQ for over 20 years.

What do you dislike?

There isn't a great deal of issues that we have. probably an easy to use monitoring and alerting tool would be more useful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

data replication, app to app messaging.

"Robust messaging software"

What do you like best?

This robust messaging software gives 100 percent high availability and dependability on it. I completely trust this IBM MQ and we never have to bounce the queue managers. I work as admin for this software and installation and maintenance is very easy

What do you dislike?

The cost associated with IBM products is always a concern. IBM has to revise the cost in this competitive world.

Recommendations to others considering the product

get IBm products for stability

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using the software to transfer messages between different applications that belong to client and us. The client sends messages from all frontend applications and our application from backend take the messages to process them

"Key tool for messaging and one to look at even as you move to new technology stacks"

What do you like best?

MQ has kep space with the times moving into cloud based (both private and public cloud) environments and is still a key tool in managing messaging between apps and environments.

What do you dislike?

Setup and configuration is still painful but increasingly easy with scripts and setups on the cloud management platforms.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Still the key messaging protocol between our legacy mainframe and also new apps being developed.

What do you like best?

Wide platform support to integrate almost any-to-any

What do you dislike?

Did not transform with the industry to support API. Now enterprises are using MQ, but are forced to build custom application layers or use additional products like Datapower and such to provide http endpoints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IBM should help existing investment to be useful

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integration into legacy M/F applications and thus leveraging core business apps developed earlier.

"IBM MQ is a solid and established messaging middleware"

What do you like best?

As a 14+ year user of IBM MQ, the feature I like the most is the continuation of features available in the first versions.

What do you dislike?

Beyond the basic functionality (queues, channels, listeners, etc) sometimes IBM MQ is not bug-free. An example is the use of multi-instance queue managers and NFS v4 shared file system.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have built an elaborate solution for a healthcare customer that uses MQ to carry messages from front-end systems to the back-end. Examples are a message when a patient is admitted to a hospital and when lab results are delivered to a doctor.

What do you like best?

Easy onloading of messages (in my case SOAP), for later offloading in another application. Makes sure that our data is not lost, when communication between applications.
