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.

Character length semantics instead of byte length semantics

We want to store UTF8 text data into our database but using byte length semantics is counter intuitive on the char and varchar types. We are using Fourj's Genero tool to develop our application and Genero is able to switch to character length sema...

ACCESSING A REMOTE TABLE REFERENCED BY A SYNONYM GIVES ERROR 926 WITHIN XA ENVIRONMENT

When we are in an XA environment, and we execute a query against a synonym for a remote server, we get an error -926. This error does not occur when using local tables. The error also does not occur if using a non-XA connection against the synonym...

Remove CHAR Space Padding In ODBC Driver 4.10

Other drivers (Informix JDBC / Open Link etc) have the ability to automatically TRIM trailing spaces from character fields - we badly need the same feature applied to ODBC. We note that the VARCHAR / NVARCHAR equivalent has just been added to ODBC...

Allow column ALIAS in HAVING clause

Just recently while working on a customer we were able to speedup a very slow query by using the recently introduced OLAP functions. The query looks like this: SELECT col1, col2, col3, col4, rank() over (partition by col1, col2 order by col4 desc)...

dynamically allocated 1000000 locks

this message will start to show repeatedly in the online log:dynamically allocated 1000000 locksbut no more info than that - in order to track down the issue, we need to know what session is causing the increase in locks

Completely drop storage of all data and index partitions with truncate table command

I just truncated 2 huge tables, after "alter table extent size nnnn".. It took a while for the storage to come down to new extent size, but only table partition shrunk. Index partitions was unaffected, still huge.
