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.

Enforce index name uniqueness at table level; not at schema level(RIMS)

currently all index names for a partiuclar schema must be unique. This is painful when there are tens of thousands of indexes. They want to be able to use duplicate schema names as long as the name is unique per table that the index is defined on.

Add functionality during database migration to allow existing tablespaces to be reduced automatically(RIMS)

In V9.7, the internal structure of a tablespace has been slightly changed to allow a better way to reduce its space when it is no more needed. This is externalized by a new option in the 'ALTER TABLESPACE' command : 'REDUCE [MAX]' The point is...

Hybrid Indexes(RIMS)

I recently inquired with IBM regarding what I am calling hybrid indexes, ie: indexes that reference normal columns as well as nodes within an XML column. This is not currently available, however, in the communications Melanie requested that I pa...
