Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Drop support for SQL Server 2012 and consider removing the use of 'legacy cardinality estimator'
Have had a few discussions with SQL Server dba:s recently during upgrades about the need to change the default sql server settings.
There were some changes introduced in SQL Server 2014 that made performance really drop unless running in SQL Server 2012 compatibility or in more recent versions using the 'Legacy Cardinality Estimation' database option.
These changes to get good query execution performance are getting more pushback and are starting to generate very unproductive discussions.
