WebSphere MQ Express provides secure, transaction-oriented connectivity for most types of applications (IBM, home-grown, and established software packages like SAP and Oracle) by passing data (information packets) as messages between your business applications. It prevents the loss of data by using message queuing and transactional transport facilities. You don't have to write complex integration code or migrate your data into the WebSphere MQ Express network; just use your data from where it currently exists.

WebSphere MQ Express enables applications to talk to each other across a network of unlike components (processors, operating systems, subsystems, and communication protocols) by using simple and consistent APIs.
