IBM MQ and Blockchain Integration: What’s New?

Webinar at 2pm BST on Thursday 13th of September

Interest in Blockchain continues to grow and the technology is here to stay, with many projects going beyond proof of concepts. IBM has invested heavily in developing Blockchain solutions and in particular integration with the widely used IBM MQ middleware. This integration helps to overcome the hurdle of legacy data access and high interaction latency when accessing the Blockchain.

If you are an IBM MQ user wondering how your organisation can reap the benefits of Blockchain, you need to make sure you’re running on the latest version of IBM MQ. However, migrating to newer MQ versions is often perceived as risky and expensive. This doesn’t have to be the case. With the right DevOps processes and tools you can significantly reduce cost and risk at the same time as you increase quality and speed of your migration project.

Join the webinar with Tech Data, Arqino and IBM on 13th of September 2018 to learn about the latest in IBM MQ v9.1 how to ensure quality and speed of your migration. Also learn about the latest updates on the IBM MQ Bridge for Blockchain and how it can benefit your business.

Webinar on the 24th of May at 2pm BST

Are your Customer 360 projects struggling to access legacy data?

The concept of having an always accurate and real-time view of a customer’s history and interaction is known as a 360-degree view of the customer or Customer 360. Many financial services companies are in the midst of significant digital transformation and the focus on creating an exceptional customer experience depends heavily on having a holistic view of the customer.

Quick access to legacy data is a key success factor

Customer data, especially within financial services companies, reside in many systems that are outside of Salesforce. Poor integration with these data sources leads to failed Customer 360 projects.

A key success factor for Salesforce implementations that achieve the holy grail of providing a true 360-degree view of customers is the ability to have fast and reliable access to high quality data sources.

What is Salesforce doing about this problem?

Over the years Salesforce has recognised that successful CRM implementations are dependent on access to high quality data. As a response Salesforce has released a joint solutions with IBM, using the IBM Cloud Integration for Salesforce and the Salesforce MQ Bridge to solve data integration problems.

Want to know more about this solution and how it can benefit you as a Salesforce and IBM middleware user?

Join Tech Data’s webinar with Salesforce, IBM and Arqino to learn about how to become more successful in your Customer 360 initiatives.
