TCM NonStop MQ Consultancy
Make the most of the x86 platform with an upgrade to MQ v8
For many Enterprise organisations running NonStop, IBM’s WebSphere MQ product is the best solution for their inter-application, platform independent messaging needs. Until recently IBM only ever supported an outdated v5.3.x.x version for NonStop platform which did not keep up with the latest functionality and features available for MQ for other platforms, like Linux and Mainframes.
IBM together with its partner has now ported the (near) latest version of MQ from other platforms over to NonStop for both the x86 and Itanium NonStop family. It’s the only version that runs on the x86 family of NonStop Servers.
Now in general release, MQ v8.n is ready to deploy.
However, your NonStop support team may not have the experience with the nuances of the latest release and your Middleware team on other platforms do not know NonStop, so what do you do?
- Are you upgrading to x86, so MUST upgrade to v8.n of MQ?
- Do you need to take advantage of the new features and functionality?
- Are you considering installing on NonStop for first time now that MQ has more cross-platform compatibility?
- Do you just need some assistance with an upgrade from v5.3 to v8.n?
This is where TCM can help you.
