IBM MQ and IBM i – Happy Birthday!

IBM i 30 YearsThis year sees the 30th birthday of the platform now known as IBM i (previous names AS/400, OS/400 and iSeries).

Read more about the IBM i Anniversary in Steve Will’s Blog Post announcing the celebrations.

IBM MQ 25This year also sees the 25th birthday of IBM MQ (previous names MQSeries and WebSphere MQ). Celebrations began at the IBM Think 2018 conference with cupcakes. Naomi Scott wrote this blog post as part of the celebrations: The best technology grows and innovates over time

This video was also released as part of the IBM MQ 25 years celebrations.

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.
