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.

Add functionality during database migration to allow existing tablespaces to be reduced automatically(RIMS)
In V9.7, the internal structure of a tablespace has been slightly changed to allow a better way to reduce its space when it is no more needed. This is externalized by a new option in the 'ALTER TABLESPACE' command : 'REDUCE [MAX]' The point is tha...
