|VOLUME II. – No. 2.||THURSDAY, 25 FEBRUARY, 2016||PRICE: FREE|
Welcome to the February 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.
This week saw the IBM InterConnect 2016 conference. I hope lots of you were able to make it to this event, or if you didn’t you followed along on IBMgo (Hint: you can still watch recordings on there). There were a number of IBM MQ speakers there presenting a full week of sessions. Of course there’s been a lot on Twitter about the conference too (follow the IBM Messaging Speakers for their week at InterConnect). We hope the presentation material will be made available as in previous years and will highlight once we hear about it.
