|VOLUME V. – No. 12.||TUESDAY, 31 DECEMBER, 2019||PRICE: FREE|
Welcome to the December edition of the MQGem Monthly Newsletter, bringing you company news from MQGem Software, information about the MO71, MQSCX, MQEdit, MQEV, Q and QLOAD products, our IBM MQ training modules, and interesting articles about IBM MQ.
MQGem is pleased to announce the release of a new product called MQEV, which you can try out for free until June 2020. MQEV is a program which will process the IBM MQ Event messages produced by your Queue Managers, and also the Accounting and Statistics messages produced by your distributed platform Queue Managers.
IBM announced, and released IBM MQ V9.1.4. We’re collecting up posts about it here.
It’s somewhat traditional at the end of the year to take a look back at all the things that have happened. Read ours here.
