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 specifying a normal dbspace for a BYTE or TEXT column to isolate IOs for the blob data from main row data for the table. This would be logged space just like IN TABLE as opposed to IN blobspace blob pages.

The function LENGTH () also for BLOBs / CLOBs

Unfortunately, there is no SQL statement that returns the size of the blob. You have to use an external program to get such information. I wish the sql function length() worked for BLOBs/CLOBs.

Allow External Backup on HDR Secondary

It should be possible to run external backups on HDR Secondary (beneath unbar/ontape backups). Probably the necessary enhancement is just to implement onmode -c block/unblock on HDR secondaries (update reserved pages).
