In what many have described as the Age of Disruption, businesses face one crucial decision: they can either cause a disruption in the market, or get disrupted themselves. In addition, they need to implement practices that ensure their agility. This all begins with a proper IT infrastructure.
It’s been said that IT is often the heart and soul of many enterprises, and if IT is not prepared to approach these challenges head-on, the margin for success will be diminished significantly. The IT infrastructure must be as robust as possible in order to be ready for the next wave of disruption in the industry.
Application usage is also on the rise, and although each individual app brings different benefits to the table, there must be a comprehensive communications structure in place. This not only facilitates the management of the data shared by these apps and the processes they manage, but it also helps to simplify processes while driving events and actions simultaneously.
In response to addressing these challenges, IBM developed the MQ messaging platform. Designed for easy integration into any IT infrastructure, IBM MQ enables connections to be established between apps, file, services and systems. Using IBM MQ facilitates quicker responses to key businesses priorities and processes, which is becoming especially important in the era of the Internet of Things.
IBM MQ offers many benefits, which include increased reliability for messaging, better responsiveness by connecting the right people to the right information, and facilitating the move to IoT via its mobile messaging capabilities. In addition, IBM MQ provides cost savings by connecting people, processes and devices within a single, unified infrastructure.
Although it can be implemented into virtually any type of business, IBM MQ is engineered to function within banking and retail environments. Banks can use the platform to securely and rapidly share data between devices, which is then immediately available for use afterwards. This helps to enable faster bank processing and reduce the chances of errors occurring. Physical stores can use IBM MQ to heighten their online presence by implementing click and collect functions that enable faster collection of funds post-purchase.
The healthcare and telecom industries can also benefit from IBM MQ. Telecom companies can use it to provide machine-to-machine connectivity, while healthcare service providers can use it to build sustainable healthcare systems and boost collaboration to improve patient care and outcomes.
Connectivity is key in today’s fast-paced corporate landscape, and the ability to connect people, devices and business processes through a messaging platform like IBM MQ will help make this possible.
