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.

Add Informix/onbar in the list of VEEAM Enterprise Backup Solution supported platforms

VEEAM is a fast growing Enterprise Backup solution. As of today, Informix is not part of VEEAM's supported DBMS, but should be supported before decision makers choose other DBMS platforms.

Consolidate free space across entire chunk or dbspace

I suggest a repack-like tool which consolidates free space in an entire chunk or dbspace in order to get few, big enough, free spaces to use efficiently. Being able to do so online and with little blocking is desirable

Make adoption of forest-of-trees indices easier with existing large tables

Rebuilding an index as a FOT is not supported using "alter fragment on index init". This would be useful to avoid dropping and later re-adding primary keys and referencing foreign keys. Building a FOT index is not possible in parallel. Building a ...
