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.

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.
CDC agent are often across multi platform for different database, and CDC HA solution have to depend on different technology tightly with OS and different OS version, such as AIX, Linux.
and the HA stack is often not only CDC, but also OS and Database etc, so the HA switch normal need some long time and with more unsuccessful experience.
for banking customer with CDC replication, It happened data delay when CDC instance failed, customer will take too much efforts to build HA solution for CDC at database cluster environments.
current lots of product provide self capacity to support HA/Cluster only with external sharing file system pre-request.
so CDC self HA/Cluster feature is very important to customer position CDC as enterprise Data replication platform. and It will more effective to build and manage replication solution if CDC agent can support ha/cluster architecture by itself.
