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.

4GL - INPUT statement - Ability to EXIT INPUT but still execute the AFTER INPUT control block

It would be handy to be able to exit from an INPUT statement and (conditionally) trigger the AFTER INPUT control block. Currently if you execute and EXIT INPUT, the thread will continue after the END INPUT statement. What I am requesting is a new ...

PARTITION BY clause should be available to create DPSI of Index on expression

IOE (Index on expression) can be DPSI, but when we specify PARTITION BY clause in the DDL to create partitioned IOE, it is failed by SQLCODE -628 in DB2 V11. We can create DPSI of IOE by the following DDL. CREATE INDEX TEMP.INDEX2 ON TEMP.TABLE2 (...

We have partitioned by Growth table of size 1.5TB. It is defined in the bufferpool BP2. We noticed that the average row length of the rows is around 2000 and hence by altering the tablespace to BP16K0, each page will contain more rows there by giv...

Status RREPL can be removed via normal start

In DB2 V10, we can do a START RREPL to certify that only a replication product (in our case, qrep) can update the table. It's good, as today we need a trigger in the target table to have this. The problem is that with a single start RW this restri...

Selective Suppression of DB2 maintained System History

There are times when it is not desirable to create a new DB2 maintained system history row if the values in the columns of the base table have actually not changed. DB2 already suppresses the actual update of a non-temproal table if none of the co...
