We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Allow specification of IP Ranges or Subnets in Trusted Context definitions
We would like to use Trusted Context to restrict access from specific IP addresses but the current definition requires each IP address to be specified individually. This is cumbersome for our OpenShift infrastructure where it would be more appropr...
Implicit Tablespaces for conversion of multi-table tablespaces to UTS PBG
When converting multi-table tablespaces to universal tablespaces with new command ALTER TABLESPACE MOVE TABLE you need to create a new tablespace for each table explicitely before you can use the command. It would be very nice if the ALTER TABLESP...

Drop support for SQL Server 2012 and consider removing the use of 'legacy cardinality estimator'
Have had a few discussions with SQL Server dba:s recently during upgrades about the need to change the default sql server settings. There were some changes introduced in SQL Server 2014 that made performance really drop unless running in SQL Serve...

Currently RSS apply threads have to syncronise with the other apply...
