Widespread adoption of WebSphere MQ means that it’s become a critical component of an organisation’s messaging infrastructure. Much like any software, it needs to be maintained and updates applied. This has two benefits: Ensuring you are able to take advantage of the latest features and security updates and remaining eligible for software support.
One of the biggest barriers to upgrading is the cost and risk involved in the process. The key to mitigating those risks is to leverage automation. As WebSphere MQ7.1 has recently ended support and WebSphere MQ 7.5 will end support in April of 2018, now is the time to think about how you make the move to WebSphere MQ V9.0.
- Do you have a plan to upgrade?
- What does End-of-Life and End-of-Support mean to your MQ deployment?
Join our workshop on the 20th of September, with our partner Arqino, and learn more about the latest in WebSphere MQ v9. You will also get best practice guidelines on how to accelerate your IBM MQ migration plans.
