MQGem Monthly (October 2019)

MQGem Monthly Banner

Welcome to the October edition of the MQGem Monthly Newsletter, bringing you company news from MQGem Software, information about the MO71, MQSCX, MQEdit, Q and QLOAD products, our IBM MQ training modules, and interesting articles about IBM MQ.


WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! As we all know, IBM MQ generates events, accounting and statistics messages, which contain a huge wealth of useful information. However, these messages are not easy to process, either from a storage or searching point of view. As a consequence, many customers don’t take advantage of information contained in them. In fact many customers don’t even switch them on! Here at MQGem we are developing a new product which aims to solve these issues and we are looking for customers willing to participate in a closed beta program. All we need you to do is to install our product, try it out, and see whether it reports the kind of information you are interested in. There is no obligation to purchase the product (once it ships); all we ask is that you feedback any thoughts or opinions you have once you’ve tried it. Now is the perfect time to shape the future of this new MQGem product. Please get in touch through any of the usual channels.

There have been a couple of MO71 minor updates:

IBM announces that the developerWorks Connections platform will be sunset on December 31, 2019. We plan to ‘save’ a number of useful blog posts – look out for their arrival on this blog over the next month. Please get in touch if there are MQ posts that you have bookmarked, and refer to regularly, that now have the sunset banner across the top of them.

Interesting IBM MQ links

Here are a few links that caught our eye 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.
