This course describes the concepts of message-oriented middleware as implemented by IBM MQ V8. The course is designed for new administrators, but also includes topics that are critical to architects and business users.
In this course, you learn about IBM MQ V8 basic components, and learn the trajectory that messages follow when they are exchanged between two servers. You learn how IBM MQ V8 administrative responsibilities can include the management of topic-based publish/subscribe messaging, managed file transfer, and deployments to the cloud. The course also includes basic architectural topics, best practices, and lessons from real production environments. Finally, you learn about security, publish/subscribe, clusters, administration, logging, auditing, managed file transfer, MQTT, and cloud options.
This course is designed for technical professionals who require the skills to administer IBM MQ V8, and for architects, application developers, quality assurance professionals, and business users who need to interface with IBM MQ V8.
