Midrange MQ in an Open-Source World

MQ on IBM i continues to adapt to the needs of modern IT environments.

andrew schofieldWritten by Andrew Schofield

IBM MQ has been a familiar part of the corporate IT landscape for over 20 years. It’s been through a few name changes, but the fundamental idea of using asynchronous messaging to decouple communication between applications is as important now as it has ever been. Of course, over such a long period of time, there have been huge changes—in particular, the way that developers work using the Internet and open-source, and the rise of cloud computing. Therefore, we at IBM are doing many things in MQ to make sure that existing systems remain relevant and able to interact with the latest tools and platforms.

MC SCBG Featured Product
 

TLAForms by TL Ashford converts your traditional IBM i spool files into high quality, professional forms.

Use a GUI Designer to create forms using data from a spool file and data from your IBM i files. Forms can be designed with true-type fonts, bar codes – including QR Code and Datamatrix, color images, overlays, lines, boxes and ellipses all in full color.

The software generates your forms as PDF documents that are archived to the IFS, automatically emailed and/or printed. Forms can be printed to IBM i PostScript printers, any printer connected to the network, or any printer connected to a PC. IFS locations, email addresses, and printers can be variable based on data within the spool file, data within the IBM i file or spool file attributes.

No programming is required to generate the new forms from your existing ERP, WMS or in-house application software.

The experienced TL Ashford technical support team will provide any pre-designed templates like the VICS Bill of Lading, and make sure working with the software is as easy and productive as possible!
