IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


Shape the future of IBM!

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 your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

Enable multiple query optimization class

Add a new database configuration parameter to let DB2 the use of several query optimization classes when compiling an sql statement and choose the best access path depending on the query cost. It could be done automatically depending on a fixed t...

New db2diag.log message to indicate when an optimizer plan is missed due to missing temp tablespace(RIMS)

(See Discussion entry for full details) When an optimizer plan is ineligible due to the non-existence of a sufficiently large temporary tablespace (ie. sort is unable to handle the width of workload row size), a db2diag.log message should be writ...

Unicode Data type(RIMS)

Customer's model so far has been to minimize their deployment of unicode databases (it has to do with complexity and db2 skilling), so for cases where they require some columns of unicode data, they want a built-in DB2 datatype to support this. Fo...
