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.

UNION ALL of 2 or more Db2 subsystems uses a lot of memory

Enhance server to check for “UNION ALL” and skip buffering, allowing the data to flow back to client

Support the ability for the JDBC Application name to be passed through TOR to PEER

We currently have a need to use the JDBC Application name to set schema values on virtual tables pointing to Db2 tables. This works fine for a single DVM, but when we have a DVM-to-DVM (TOR-to-PEER) situation, the application name is not being pas...

Allow for the creation of UDTF without the cross memory constraint to Db2

Currently when I attempt to create a UDTF, I must have a Db2 subsystem defined to DVM that is running on the same LPAR and it cannot be a data-sharing Db2 behind a DVIPA. Step one would be to eliminate the need for a Db2 subsystem to be selected i...

Support retrieval of data from IMS Secondary Index using DVM IMS Direct

We have in-house applications that stores data in an IMS Secondary Index database. The application would like to use DVM to retrieve data from their IMS INDEX DB. Currently in DVM V1.1.0 using IMS-Direct on an IMS Index is not supported. Applicati...

Server Trace profile values should be tied to a specific subsystem

While in the ISPF Server Trace, I can set profile values in order to limit the number of records being viewed. These profiles should be specific to the subsystem that I am currently connected to instead of a global variable that applies to the ISP...

Return sql warning when zero/spaces are returned for invalid values in host files.

DVM allows us to turn on parameters like SQLENGIVZERO and SQLENGDFSHRC to handle situations where the underlying record contains invalid values or is shorter than the table structure. In cases where DVM converts values under the covers, a warning ...

Only allow the creator of a given map to delete it

Currently any user that has the ability to create maps also has the ability to delete them regardless of who the original creator was. This coupled with the current view in DVM Studio that displays the entire subsystem instead of just a subset of ...
