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.

RDS on SQL Server support for Cognos Controller

We plan to upgrade Cognos Controller from 10.3 to 10.4.2 as version 10.3 is reaching its EOL. For this upgrade, on Database side we look for option to go with AWS RDS for SQL server.

I have logged a case TS005705990 to check if RDS SQL DB is supported or not since there are some limitation compared to use on-prem SQL DB. We are informed that as of now RDS is not supported. We are also suggested to raise new enhancement request for this matter

May i check if any possibility we use AWS RDS on SQL server as our DB to run Cognos Controller?
