You can make a business case to your management that instead of spending 
hundreds of thousands of dollars on IBM Websphere MQ to get started,and 
then much more indefinitely for IBM support contract, you could hire 1 
Erlang developer who would implement the missing AMQP 1.0 features in 
RabbitMQ https://github.com/rabbitmq/rabbitmq-amqp1.0

That would create tremendous goodwill towards your company and make the 
world a better place :)

Or the company could just pay huge monthly bills by using Microsoft Azure 
Messaging http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/service-bus/ 
because Microsoft charges for e-v-e-r-y-thing, even "Billable messages 
include any "no message available" replies".
