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.

MOVETB feature (FL 508) with DROP tablespace option enabled

Restart Admin Tool Execution Job without processing previously failed binds

We often expect binds to fail as part of a admin tool execution job. On restart we would like an option to be able to restart from the failed point without rerunning the previously failed commands.

Out of date rebind listings in admin tool implementation and backout jobs

We request a new feature that would ensure the rebind listings were up to date at the point of execution e.g. dynamically check at run time for relevant packages with a bind date AFTER the analysis timestamp, generating a "missing binds" step to run.

Allow generated utilities to operate on a listdef rather than individual steps

If we generate a utility such as copy against a list of objects then the resulting job, or jobs, are generated with one step per object. This makes the JCL unwieldly and serialises the run.
