Many organizations have a large number of WebSphere MQ applications. Over time these can become difficult to manage, being undocumented, and generally not well understood.

Unless the applications are well managed, sharing and reuse becomes difficult. Higher development and maintenance costs are incurred with multiple versions of very similar services deployed in production. Making changes to MQ applications, queues, or queue managers without fully understanding the impact on other entities in the organization can incur costly failures and delays.

In this webcast, IT Managers and Enterprise Architects will learn how they can provide visibility to MQ applications by cataloging them as services in IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. Drive smarter business outcomes — reduce costs and increasing productivity by:

  • Leveraging high value MQ applications across the enterprise by ensuring that MQ Services are visible to all SOA consumers
  • Maximizing utilization of limited IT budgets and resources by better understanding of MQ Applications and their usage promotes reuse
  • Ensuring consistency and interoperability of your SOA where MQ Services follow same lifecycle governance best practices & policies, as all other services.

Featured Speaker Bios:

Ben Mann studied IT at the University of Surrey and first joined IBM in 1998 developing applications used to track product requirements and train field sales. In 2000 he wrote a dissertation using formal specification languages to model messaging and message brokering behaviors. Ben has held numerous marketing roles in the IBM software group, almost always with some connection to WebSphere MQ and is fortunate to have cut his teeth alongside the very people who established the WebSphere MQ business. In 2004 he took the role as Worldwide Product Manager for the WebSphere MQ family of products and finds the whole business utterly fascinating. He is regularly –and quite rightly–accused of being passionate about WebSphere MQ.

Mark Phillips is a Senior Software Engineer in the WebSphere MQ Technical Strategy team with responsibility for Messaging clients, APIs, and Web services. He joined IBM Hursley Labs in 1995 and has since worked in various roles in the MQ strategy, development and support teams. Prior to joining IBM he spent 9 years with an IBM mid-range business partner working on ERP systems as a developer and technical consultant. He is studying for a Master's degree in Software Engineering at Oxford University and is a member of the QSE Product Owner Community leadership team.

Sunil Murthy is a Product Manager driving the WebSphere Service Registry and Repository initiative as part of the IBM SOA offering. He has been involved in the broader SOA and WebSphere Portfolio Strategy for over 2 years. Sunil has been a Middleware Integration Technical Specialist for over 5 years working in the WebSphere team, part of the Application and Middleware Software within IBM Software Group. He has over 12 years of software industry experience and has been working with IBM Premier Business Partners and customers. He has been providing technical consulting and in-depth expertise on products that constitute the IBM WebSphere SOA Platform.
