MQGem Monthly (June 2016)

MQGem Monthly Banner

Welcome to the June 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.


After announcing IBM MQ V9 and MQ Appliance changes in April, June saw the release of the IBM MQ product on Distributed (2nd June) and z/OS (17th June), and the availability of the M2001 appliance model (10th June). With a new release comes updates to the MQ Explorer, MQ Clients and the Trial download.

To support the new version of IBM MQ, a new version of MO71, our GUI MQ Administration tool, has been released. Current licensed users of MO71 can run the new version on their existing licence. Apart from support for V9, there are a number of other new features that you can use immediately.

Interesting IBM MQ links

Here are a few links that caught our eye this month – bumper crop this month!

We share all the above links on our Twitter feed and Facebook page so if you don’t want to wait until the end-of-month newsletter, follow us on there.

Upcoming events

There are a number of conference events where IBM MQ will be featured in the coming months. Hopefully you’ll be able to sign up to one near you and obtain some MQ technical education.
