For almost 20 years, enterprise users have relied on IBM MQ (Message Queuing) to reliably and securely move information through their businesses. For them, the continued and expanded use of MQ is simply good business.
For potential new users of many sizes, WebSphere MQ is likely to be much better than what you’re using now and will complement what you have in place. WebSphere MQ also provides the basis for new levels of connectivity in a host of “modern” applications. For example:• Access to your data in real time where you require assured delivery, connectivity anywhere, and end-to-end security. For example, traffic data from millions of in-road devices can be used to determine appropriate usage charges or direct changes in traffic flow. The New Zealand DOT uses WebSphere MQ to send messages to automated highway signs.
• WebSphere MQ can support data collection from many type of remote devices, supporting the ability to predict, alert, measure, and track.
• Two levels of telemetry support for mobile and smart devices. A Standard Telemetry offering features a very lightweight client; an Advanced Telemetry with a larger footprint can fit on a mobile phone.
• Telemedicine, transporting patient data (from a pacemaker, for example) to a physician to determine changes and instructions.
• Energy Usage: moving data from Smart Meters.
WebSphere MQ supports a broad range of applications and opportunities. Some new customers use it for managed file transfer. In Madrid, it’s used to coordinate emergency services. In Holland, Websphere MQ provides early detection as part of their flood protection systems.
Websphere MQ can also offer cost savings and a competitive edge – supporting data and transaction integrity and providing an opportunity to create new applications.
In the cloud, WebSphere MQ helps keep track of data in an environment which is not always connected, so that after an outage of any duration, the data will keep flowing without data loss. Read on for more information on WebSphere MQ and the role it can play in your organization and applications.
