Two ways you can use IBM MQ on Cloud

Make information available in the cloud Your company uses a mobile app on the cloud to facilitate e-commerce transactions. IBM MQ on Cloud connects the on-premises stock system with the consumer application to give users real-time information about what products are available.

Connect applications hosted in different locations Your company hosts its core IT systems in San Francisco, but packages are processed in a depot in London. IBM MQ on Cloud reliably transmits messages from one location to another. It lets the London office encrypt "send" data about every package that needs to be tracked, and lets the San Francisco office receive and process that information more securely. Both offices can trust that information won’t be lost.
