In 1993, as grunge and alternative music picked up momentum, the first beanie babies were released and Jurassic Park dominated the box office, computing was making big strides, too. The World Wide Web was born at CERN and Intel released the first Pentium microprocessor. IBM also released the world’s flagship enterprise messaging technology: MQ.
Messaging is the backbone of enterprise computing, providing the foundational technology through which systems communicate in a semantically precise way. MQ delivers on the key tenets of enterprise messaging: security, reliable routing, precise definitions for each data element, system subscription that enables routing of messages according to content and a policy-based implementation.
