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.

Simple, unified way to set and troubleshoot parallelized report & visualization queries for concurrent execution

Problem to solve - Clients need to be able to make query processing concurrent for their reports and individual visualizations so that their end users (who only open reports to get some information, then close them) have the opportunity to get what they need in a more timely manner, rather than having to wait for the entire report (or group of reports) to load

The As-Is - While there technically is a way to parallelize report execution, it's not easy to troubleshoot if things aren't working as expected. It's not clear if query execution per visualization is even possible, and it's even less clear about how one does basic troubleshooting, such as telling whether or not it is even enabled.

The solution - To have a way to set and troubleshoot parallelized queries that is simple, and as consistent as possible for report queries and queries for individual visualizations.

An ideal would be to have a totally unified experience in a single location in the UI that becomes the place people go to in order to set and troubleshoot everything related to concurrent execution. But as long as there is one consistent way to go about it, there doesn't necessarily have to be one place.
