We look forward to more IBM MQ celebrations as the December date approaches later this year. Follow the #IBMMQ25 hashtag to watch the celebrations.
IBM MQ on IBM i
MQSeries on OS/400 was the first of the distributed platforms to ship, partly due to the alignment with the OS/400 stack. MQ has been on IBM i platform since 1994.
Our very own Paul Clarke was part of the team that developed MQ on the OS/400. He has fond memories of the interesting and challenging discussions that were had with the introduction of the different architecture of the OS/400 machine compared to the Unix and OS/2 machines they had been working on.
To celebrate both birthdays, MQGem is very pleased to announce that all our MQ training modules now include instructions for the IBM i platform as well.
