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 PAM in OleDB clients (for password mode)

Currently OleDB clients can't connect to PAM enabled ports.We recently allowed PAM connections for DRDA connections if in password mode (APAR IC99560).I'd say there is no reason why OleDB wouldn't work for password mode, just like it was implement...

Allow disabling automatic Next Extent calculations

Informix automatically doubles the Next Extent size for every 16 extents on a table. This action will continue until an extent is large enough to provide at least 10% free space. On very large, slow-growing tables, this can lead to an incredible w...
