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.

DSNT376I message don't supply total information to solve the problem analisys

Stop package invalidation after ALTER MAXPARTITIONS

These days in an agile world we have to ALTER PBG spaces on-the-fly to raise the MAXPARTITIONS value. Sadly this ALTER, even though it is an immediate ALTER, sets all dependent packages to VALID = 'N' which is, of course, a disaster.

Improve performance of EXPLAIN

With early versions of DB2 the performance of EXPLAIN was not relevant. Nowadays, where DBAs do thousands of EXPLAINs, the performance and turnaround is getting critical. I think there is room for better performance and throughput of mass EXPLAINs...

A View with Select * should be regenertated without Drop/Create View

We have a lot of views defined with Select *. Since DB2 V8 we have the option to add columns to the base table, but the view does not include the new column, which is ok and accepted. But to get the new column we have to drop and recreate the View...
