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.

Suport Multiple data marts in Controller FAP fully

A customer publishes several datamarts from a single source. Structures are updated in Controller and the user goes into FAP administration and tries to update structures on all datamarts concurrently. Sometimes this will fail because the temporary tables used are named generically and are not specific to one datamart. This functionality would then work properly and would not cause random failures. It can be worked around by running updates sequentially, but users will not want to do this. As sometimes it may work, it will be seen as a bug when it fails.

    Hello Paul,

    Is this not already supported as long as updates are run sequentially? I have seen many client environments with one source to two data marts working fine, therefore thought this was already supported.
