IBM MQ for System Administration - All Platforms

SEE SCHEDULE

Duration: 5 Days

Method: Instructor led, Hands-on workshops

Price: $2950.00

Course Code: MQ3012


Audience

System programmers, systems administrators, and technical support personnel responsible for maintenance and support of IBM MQ for z/OS and distributed platforms on a daily basis.

Description

You have been given the task of supporting and maintaining IBM MQ on your z/OS or distributed systems but have no formal training in IBM MQ. Then this is the course for you. In five days, we will cover what you need to understand about IBM MQ for z/OS and distributed platforms plus the knowledge and techniques to administer the MQ environment. In the class, we will go from creating a queue manager, to defining MQ resources, to interconnecting our queue managers, plus cover some supporting processes along the way. We will utilize both z/OS and Windows platforms for the hands-on workshops.

Prerequisites

A good working knowledge of TSO/ISPF, z/OS JCL, good working knowledge of Linux, UNIX, or Windows environments, plus at least one year working in the z/OS and distributed environments in either a support / administration role or as a developer with application support exposure.
