Enterprise Messaging & Enterprise Service Bus

Sometimes related, sometimes separate enterprise messaging is a critical component of Enterprise Service Bus strategy and vice versa

About Enterprise Messaging & Message Queue (MQ)

Every day more than 2.8 quintillion bytes of data are shared throughout the world. Communication happens more rapidly than ever, and MQ (message queue) is the conduit that keeps the channels open. There is more information exchanged between people, platforms, devices, systems and locations every second than there was every day 20 years ago. As the core infrastructure for application messaging, MQ is the heartbeat that keeps the connection flowing. When your systems communicate effectively, the data exchanged provides valuable insight that can significantly impact business performance. However, when your enterprise messaging stalls, data stops being an asset and turns into a burden.MQGraphic

On top of those deployment concerns, the sheer volume of critical data moving back and forth means that security constantly tops the list of major concerns. TxMQ’s enterprise messaging solutions ensure a rapid, simple and safe MQ deployment, saving you time and money in operations and overhead. Most importantly, you don’t have to worry about losing any more customers to security risks or frequent down time.


Why TxMQ?

TxMQ consultants have been working with MQ since before the turn of the century with middleware experience originating from mainframe application integration now exceeding 35 years.   IBM MQ is the industry standard for enterprise connectivity between disparate technical platforms.


What Can MQ do for You?

If you are a first-timer, as a large number of our customers are, working with IBM MQ, understanding MQ Concepts can be extremely beneficial to fast-path your first project.

IBM MQ is considered a messaging transport for the asynchronous delivery of application messages whereby applications are modified to get and put the MQ queues. These MQ queues are managed by a Resource Manager called a Queue Manager. The Queue Manager is the collection of processes running on a designated server, similar to a Database, that manages all the internal and complex workings of MQ. Queue Managers talk to each other through MQ Channels. This communication is critical for the passing of data in the proper structure (ASCII to EBCDIC) using the proper coded character set ID. MQ provides what is called, “assured delivery” in that messages will be transferred once and only once to the destination application queue.

MQ Support Tools

Do your IT administrators complain that systems run too slow?

Empower them to measure usage and capacity of the entire MQ infrastructure with one tool. Exclusively from TxMQ, QPacity is a new solution developed for performance-metrics analysis of your enterprise-wide WebSphere MQ (Now IBM MQ) infrastructurebox.

Virtualize Your MQ

TxMQ is an IBM Premier Business Partner with a proven track record that spans more than 35 years. We created the MQ Virtual Appliance to offer the Benefits Of IBM’s New MQ Appliance In A Virtualized Solution. It’s A NEW WAY TO MQ.

MQ Case Study

Financial data is a top security priority.  MQ transmits messaging between systems at hundreds or even thousands of bank branches all over the world.  When a major international bank grew tired of struggling with the speed and security of their IT infrastructure, they came to TxMQ for a complete platform refresh.  In addition to migrating to virtualized servers, we further enhanced their security by providing their banking applications with full server failover clustering.  Our extensive knowledge with MQ enabled us to reduce their fade over time and improve their system operation time, or high availability (HA), from 99% to 99.999%.  That’s less than half an hour of downtime each year.


We improved their system operation time, or high availability (HA), from 99% to 99.999%.

Enterprise Service Bus

Unlock an integration strategy that transforms your technology into a more secure and nimble infrastructure.

What is an “Enterprise Service Bus”?

Whether you’ve just started looking at application and data integration solutions or you need to enhance the strategy you already have in place, an enterprise service bus (ESB) solution can be critical to your business success.

Enterprise service bus is all about smooth and successful systems integration. In the digital economy, companies must be more agile if they want to succeed. Embracing nimble infrastructure reduces cost and empowers growth, so these businesses do more than succeed – they excel.

Enterprise service bus solutions provide flexible connectivity infrastructure for integrating the applications and services that keep your business running. There are some far-off corners in the digitally connected world, especially in middleware. Enterprise service bus provides the connectivity to implement a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that reduces the complexity of integrating applications and services. TxMQ architects can help lead your transformation to a more nimble and secure integration middleware strategy.

Featured Solution: IBM Integration Bus (IIB)

Do you want ESB technology with options for a universal integration foundation? Are you ready for a solution that meets the increasing demand for secure integration? IBM’s Integration Bus solution enables connectivity and transformation in heterogeneous IT environments for businesses of any size, in any industry and covering a range of platforms.

Proven Success

The health insurance business sector has experienced rapid, transformational change over the past half-decade. Government mandates drive new privacy and security requirements. More players in the marketplace fuel tougher, more adaptive competition. TxMQ helped several major health insurers develop the flexibility needed to meet the critical need for ongoing change. We transformed legacy solutions for HIPAA EDI and core-system integration into more secure and nimble infrastructures.

A well-designed ESB sits at the core of our solution. It helps isolate the impact of change and streamlines the testing cycle so new capabilities can be delivered quickly and at a lower cost. What’s more, the solution dramatically reduces the ongoing cost of maintenance and support.
