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.

Allow for the parallel restore of multiple different db2 tablespaces when Incremental Backups are present

Refer to Case TS000107666 for more info. Allow for the restore of multiple db2 tablespaces in parallel when Incremental Backups are present. Parallel tablespace restore with incremental backups should accommodate: rebuild db restore (with subset ...

Platform switch Windows-Linux using OFFLINE database backup image

A platform switch from Windows to Linux (or Linux to Windows), would be much easier if one can use the DB2 backup image itself. Not necessary between two different DB2 versions, and it doesn't have to be an online backup, and of course platforms a...

DB2 should use the HWM value instead of total allocation for restores on AUTO storage dbs

This is general problem for db2 restore with automatic storage environments. The redirected restore requires total space allocated on source DB tablespaces instead of traditional HWM space requirements. This increases the space requirements on the...
