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.

Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS

Showing 85

UNION ALL of n number of Db2 uses a lot of memory and runs long

Enhance server to support parallelism for “UNION ALL” using the MRC capability.

UNION ALL of 2 or more Db2 subsystems uses a lot of memory

Enhance server to check for “UNION ALL” and skip buffering, allowing the data to flow back to client

Support the ability for the JDBC Application name to be passed through TOR to PEER

We currently have a need to use the JDBC Application name to set schema values on virtual tables pointing to Db2 tables. This works fine for a single DVM, but when we have a DVM-to-DVM (TOR-to-PEER) situation, the application name is not being pas...

DVM Inserts into SQL DateTime2 column

Inserts into Datetime2 datatype column is not supported via DVM. APAR number PH34676 has been opened for this. Opening this AHa icket to track APAR.

Allow for the creation of UDTF without the cross memory constraint to Db2

Currently when I attempt to create a UDTF, I must have a Db2 subsystem defined to DVM that is running on the same LPAR and it cannot be a data-sharing Db2 behind a DVIPA. Step one would be to eliminate the need for a Db2 subsystem to be selected i...

Utilize IMS Catalog when creating virtual tables

Per IBM direction, we are currently working towards fully populating the IMS catalog. This catalog could be used in a similar manner to the Db2 catalog when creating DVM virtual tables. Instead of providing the DBD, PSB and copybooks when creating...

Support for columns with names longer than 30 characters

DVM currently fails when attempting to create virtual tables over source tables with column names longer than 30 characters. DBMS's including Postgres, Oracle and DB2 LUW allow for longer column names.

Refresh all DVM's sharing the same map dataset

In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.

Add latest version of the log4j API to the DVM distribution

The log4j that ships with DVM is not the latest version available online (at https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/download.html). We need the flexibility of using any log4j jar.

Allow Logon to JDBC Gateway Console via RACF group instead of shared credentials

Currently the logon to each JGate console is via a single id/pw. These credentials must be shared by the support team which is not a best practice. When team members leave, all passwords must be changed (if that's even possible). If changing the p...
