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.

Enhance DPfD support so that statement cache, thread storage, DDF Comms buffers and any other areas that may contain SPI data are marked as eligible for redaction

We tried DPfD (Db2 APAR PH15940) but found that an SVC dump of Db2 still contained SQL statements in the dynamic statement cache after redaction (using BLSJDPFD). We appreciate that bufferpools are redacted, but we are concerned that SPI may be ca...

Begin / End COMMIT instrumentation for DRDA, CICS/IMS

Complex CICS/IMS or DRDA transactions (involving multiple programs with an implicit Commit at the end) are incorrectly presented on the Omegamon Accounting Report/Trace. By design the costs of the tough SYNC (COMMIT) operation are added to the las...

Currently Data Studio does not support IPV6 addressing. We are now running with IPV4 and that works fine but are now testing IPV6 for future use. Data Server Manager does work with IPV6 and Data Studio should as well. We tested with 6 part address...

Allow the setting of a global option make LOAD jobs fail if a PRESORT cannot be performed
