IBM® Websphere MQ is robust messaging middleware that simplifies and accelerates the integration of diverse applications and business data across multiple platforms. IBM Websphere MQ facilitates the assured, secure and reliable exchange of information between applications, systems, services and file by sending and receiving message data via messaging queues, thereby simplifying the creation and maintenance of business applications. It delivers Universal Messaging with a broad set of offerings to meet enterprise-wide messaging needs, as well as connectivity for the internet of things and mobile devices.

An ESB serves as the integration foundation within a business, ensuring connectivity and transformation in IT environments. With IBM Integration Bus, customers can expect increased value with an ESB that is:

IBM WebSphere MQ

IBM MQ provides:

Rapid, seamless connectivity of information with a single, robust and trusted messaging backbone for dynamic heterogeneous environments.

1 Integrates with a mix of heterogeneous applications with support for multiple platform configurations, including industry-standard JMS messaging, scalable Publish-subscribe and a choice of APIs.
2 Provides a comprehensive, secure and reliable messaging solution to support conventional and emerging messaging needs.
3 Offers an integrated solution for comprehensive managed file transfer, with connectivity to mobile devices through a single messaging layer.

4 Supports a wide range of messaging needs, including point-to-point, publish-and-subscribe and file transfer.
5Adds transformation, intelligent routing and information flow modeling to the IBM MQ messaging backbone using the IBM Integration Bus.

Secure, reliable message delivery that preserves message integrity and minimizes risk of information loss.

1 Assures delivery of information - once and only once - with the highest quality of service.
2 Ensures real-time information is available and accessible from anywhere, at any time.
3 Provides reliable delivery, without message loss, duplication or complex recovery, if the network should fail.
4 Protects sensitive data with security rich functions, including full authentication (based on OS or LDAP, if required), encryption when moving and at rest and message integrity, helping to ensure compliance with regulatory policies.
5 Preserves message integrity throughout the network.

High-performance and scalable message transfer to meet the demands of today’s enterprise and beyond.

1 Flexible solution that allows rapid response to changes, reducing the need to modify code in the applications.
2 Highly scalable solution that can address evolving workloads and new mobile and cloud deployments.
3 Highly available solution with fully automated failover.

4 Dynamically distributed messaging workloads available through clustering.

5 High throughput, low-latency solution with support for Multicast.

Simplified management and control for better control and usability.

1 Integrates capabilities of IBM MQ with IBM Managed File Transfer, IBM Advanced Message Security and IBM MQ Telemetry in a single offering - IBM MQ Advanced.
2 Uses a single installation process for deploying the full set of IBM MQ capabilities in distributed environments.
3 Allows complete visibility and tracking of messages and files for gaining insights through a single dashboard view.

4 Permits a quick audit of the movement of data and completion of transactions.

5 Simplifies application integration tasks by using a function-rich, easy-to-use application development interface with full code access for development.

Lower cost of ownership by reducing cost of integration and accelerating time to deployment.

1 Reduces the cost and effort associated with managing multiple solutions using a unified messaging solution.
2 Lessens the complexity of application design and maintenance, thus reduces integration costs and time.
3 Reduces the cost of connecting applications through a rich set of connectivity functions.
4 Eliminates the need to write complex communications, code, offering a choice of simple API options.
