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.

Converting ZCEE WOLA to ZCEE JVM

Currently the connection between zCEE and DVM is over WOLA. This setup requires a 1:1 zCEE server for each DVM subsystem that needs to expose web services. We would like to see an alternative interface added that would allow multiple DVMs to be se...

Consistently handle unsupported Db2 datatypes when creating Virtual tables

When creating a Vitural Table for Db2 BLOB and CLOB with traditional access, the wizard prompts that these columns will be omitted. Executing selects against the created VT is successful. If direct access to Db2 is chosen, the same prompts occur, ...

Add schema support to DVS

In our test environments we have the same Db2 tables on the same Db2 subsystem under different schemas. This allows for multiple teams to be testing against different sets of data, and potentially different version of table DDL at the same time. B...

Allow Source DVM to pass Virtual Target System name to target DVM over IDF

We would like the ability for the source DVM to pass information, such as the Virtual Target System name, to the target DVM and make this information available within the rules running on the target. This will allow us to reduce the number of DVM ...

Provide CDC integration with DVM

Provide the ability for DVM to interface with CDC for both VSAM and IMS data sources. Support a mechanism to keep DVM extracted data up to date to meet SLAs related to data currency.

Remove the need to have SEF (Update) in order to create Web Service directories.

We want our application areas to control the creation of their own virtual tables/views and the web services structures. Currently SEF (Update) is required for the creation of Web Service directories. This access would also give them the ability t...

Allow users to navigate to next zoom trace via a PF key

Currently, when looking at zoom information in multiple sequential trace entries, the user has to PF3 to back out of the current zoom, re-position the cursor on the next line and then press enter. After every PF3, the cursor returns to the top of ...

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.

Provide the ability to update DVM Virtual data using Db2

Currently DVM supports the creation of UDTF's on DVM virtual tables. This provides the customer with the ability to use Db2's SQL engine and Read DVM Data. This proposal is to add functionality to DVM to support updating DVM virtual tables using a...
