WebSphere MQ-CICS Bridge

IBM WebSphere MQ-CICS Bridge can reduce integration time of CICS applications with WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), allowing you to directly access WebSphere MQ applications from applications on your CICS system.

With WebSphere MQ-CICS Bridge, you no longer be required to modify, recompile, or re-link your legacy applications controlled by 3270-connected terminals.

WebSphere MQ-CICS bridge ensures that you face no problems while running applications driven by nonprogrammable terminals enabling non-running applications on CICS environment to run and get a response from any environment that has access to a WebSphere MQ network.

How you’ll benefit:

  • Run applications on any platform
  • Get support for handling MQ headers (MQMD and MQCIH)
  • Reduce Integration time
  • Reuse Legacy Applications controlled by 3270-connected terminals

Websphere MQ Health Check

Get more from your existing systems with WebSphere MQ Health-check

WebSphere® MQ is the back bone of the Messaging Services for SOA and for your entire architecture of the applications and web Services that need to exchange data and events with proven reliability, consistency, and transactional integrity which is secure, flexible, scalable, and time independent only in certain conditions if it is maintained through a verified and organized programmatic approach.

WebSphere® MQ is a widely used messaging platform providing reliable communication and integration services for efficient IT infrastructure and SOA implementation to maintain global redundancy for seamless delivery. Often these systems are flawed with passage of time due to tactical implementation across a number of different operating systems putting your organizational security and performance at stake.

Web Sphere MQ Guru is offering MQ Health Check to help you get most of your MQ implementation where our consultants will design and review the security and performance of your organization’s MQ implementation and assess a number of key areas where improvements can be found.

After the analysis, MQ Health Check Report will be delivered to you with detailed findings and high level recommendations and on implementation it will gear up your enterprise through addressing the followings issues:

–  Performance

–  Compliance

–  Security

–  Availability

–  Auditability

–  Disaster Recovery

–  Monitoring

–  Flexibility

–  Consistency

–  Scalability

–  Scripts/Automation

–  Upgrades

Our Health Check Assessment allows you to determine vulnerabilities in your MQ infrastructure without being intrusive with no cost and little effort based on the project scope.
