Overall Satisfaction with IBM MQ

IBM MQ is used to facilitate data transfer between business partners. We utilize the high availability, persistent features to guarantee data delivery.
  • Fantastic quality of product services and features.
  • Security is of great importance and MQ satisfies our needs.
  • Interoperability with customers for data collection and sharing is made easy through IBM MQ.
  • Support is always one PMR away.
  • Monitoring is generally a feature left to third party apps. Providing better monitoring tool would be a great market differentiator.
  • Built in alarms and notifications (see above improvement) would be helpful.
  • GUI modeling of queue managers, channels and queues would be a good improvement.
  • Positive gains in data sharing. The time to market to set up new customers is relatively easy. Not touchless but easy.
  • Few maintenance costs. It just works.
  • Upgrades are painless so little money is spent on them, yielding positive ROIs.
  • Activemq, HornetQ and Kafka
IBM MQ is the product for inter-business communication for security, flexibility and scalability.
Well suited for data collection/distribution externally.
Not great for dev-ops internally. Too restrictive and not flexible enough.
