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.

We recently migrated via TDMF from mod 54 to EAV devices (4 times larger) TDMF will copy the data to a space the size of the mod 54 (1/4 of the EAV). IDAA will only recognize and use the that space wasting 3/4 of the device. We would like IDAA to ...

InSync's predecessor (Change Data Capture) has never had a problem when utilities such as REORG were performed on non-UTS tables. As we try to convert to InSync, the majority of our replicated tables in IDAA are in legacy simple, non-UTS table spa...
