      Title: Expand Your IBM MQ Management with Self-Service, Tracked Messages, and More
      Time: 12 pm US Eastern


      The IBM MQ family of products has evolved into powerful, complex resources—at the same time it has made the MQ Administrator’s life more complex. The applications groups will want to know why their middleware applications have not behaved as expected and therefore the MQ team must prepare to track messages in order to provide the application team with their answer.

      Equipping the DevOps stakeholders with self-service where they can diagnose, test and replay messages can reduce the load on the MQ team at the same time it helps development and test groups. Discover where you can leverage your knowledge of both MQ and other resources to create a complete picture of the technology that supports each decision and action the business encounters.

      This webcast highlights:

      • What capabilities beyond just monitoring MQ exist and how can you leverage them in your organization.
      • How does going beyond monitoring in environments provide benefits to you
      • What value does Nastel offer that can be utilized by your organization to reduce overall cost
