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.

Specify User Exit routine name when defining IMS-DB virtual table

In Japan, most IMS user customers, especially in financial sector, have their roll-your-own program modules called "DBI" (database interface), and database access must be made through DBI always. DBI provides, for example, data compression/de-comp...

Allow columns to be deleted when creating Virtual Tables

Allow for a project view in Studio that only shows maps for a specific user and interfaces with both SCM and DVM servers.

The current Server tab shows all maps for a given DVM subsystem. The main premise of this Aha is that developers typically have a view within an IDE that contains just their project code (linked to their software configuration management system). ...

Validate SQL should simply validate whether the SQL is valid to execute

Currently, while in editing SQL in DVM Studio, you can highlight the SQL and choose "Validate SQL". This option will run the same logic used when creating a view and flag, for example, duplicate column names as an error. In this case the flagged S...
