DataStage Support for MQv9.2 and MQv9.3 Required for HSBC (and very likely other users)
This is useful because:
HSBC and other enterprise-class customers build standardised packages of software at compatible levels in support of business applications. Re-creation of these standard packages e.g. when a component reaches end of support is a major undertaking: it can consume many man-years of effort in creation and testing.
MQv9.2 has been available since mid-2020
MQv9.3 has been available since mid-2022
Neither MQv9.2 nor MQv9.3 is supported by DataStage. Only MQv9.1 is supported and that will go out of support at end 3Q2023. This will trigger a long, risky and expensive exercise in the bank to integrate MQv9.2 or MQv9.3 into the product software packages...which could easily be avoided if DataStage were to support either or both of the newer versions before YE2022.
Neither HSBC nor other enterprise customers are motivated to use old levels of software. HSBC are using DataStage v188.8.131.52
