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 an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.

Mac users are limited to installing the DVM plugin on their workstations. MacOS 10.14 is the last version that supports the current 32-bit application. The plugin will not install on an OS beyond 10.14.
In most cases, the collection of runstats requires access to the underlaying data. This access is typically not available to the DVM support team. Those with access to the data will likely not have access to modify global variables outside of De...
Preserve joins with accessing multiple underlying DVMs in a single SQL statement
I have a SQL statement that joins 3 tables from 1 PEER DVM with a single table from a different PEER DVM. Currently DVM is breaking this statement into 4 separate SQL statements before sending them to Db2. A better approach, when possible would ...

GISS wants to exploit the data that RMF is generating in online mode, that is, to exploit the data that RMF is holding online. Probably an easy way is to access the VSAM file where RMF keeps the data, but we don’t know the record layout.We see tha...
