On July 27th, AMQP Working Group representatives from the Bank of America, VMware, the 451 Group, Red Hat and INETCO held a briefing to discuss the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), and recent developments around the open standard for business messaging. Topics ranged from:
- The potential market impact of AMQP, and why it is superior to previous middleware integrations
- How AMQP offers practical business-to-business interoperability, freedom from proprietary lock-in and strong support from vendors
- Why it has become a surprise front-runner for passing data within cloud & high mobility infrastructures
- Real business cases validating the use of AMQP
- The current status of the AMQP specification
The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) promotes the interoperability that is fundamental to achieving connectivity amongst heterogeneous application systems and enterprise middleware software integrations in a cost effective manner. AMQP also provides an easier, more secure approach to passing real-time data streams and time-sensitive business transactions between applications, among organizations, across distributed and cloud computing environments, and within mobile infrastructures.
Founded by some of the world’s largest financial firms and software vendors, the AMQP Working Group has recently transitioned to OASIS AMQP, an independent Member Section under the aegis of the OASIS international standards consortium.
