|VOLUME I. – No. 12.||THURSDAY, 31 DECEMBER, 2015||PRICE: FREE|
Welcome to the December edition of the MQGem Monthly Newsletter, bringing you company news from MQGem Software, information about the MO71, MQSCX and QLOAD products, and interesting articles about IBM MQ.
It’s somewhat traditional to take a look back over the year, on New Years Eve, here’s ours.
The Global WebSphere Community (GWC) has joined with the Tivoli and Rational communities to form the IBM Middleware User Community. If you are a former GWC member, your user ID will exist on the new site, and you just need to set up a new password. The Little Gem series of posts about the smaller, perhaps less likely to be noticed, features of IBM MQ will continue over on the IMWUC in the New Year.
