Willow launches its "viaMQ" brand.

viaMQ represents a range of application products that solve specific problems across a range of industries and environments.  As the name implies, all products use WebSphere MQ or MQ Everyplace as their transport.


  • viaMQ products are designed to allow easy customization to meet specific customer needs.

  • Many will interface to existing customer applications without the need for those applications to change.

  • viaMQ complements Willow's WebSphere MQ products.  Whereas WebSphere MQ provides a messaging infrastructure, viaMQ delivers solutions on top of that infrastructure.

  • viaMQ products will work with select WebSphere products from both Willow and IBM.
