IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

Azure SQLMI Target - Support for "redirect" connection type

IBM CDC replication for Azure SQLMI target currently does not support "redirect" connection type. According to Microsoft documentation, redirect connection type is recommended for Azure SQLMI database connection in order to maintain low latency and high throughput for applications. Fidelity cloud policy also mandate connection type is set to "redirect" and not "proxy" for Azure SQLMI target.

Hence we are requesting IBM to enhance IBM CDC tool to support 'redirect' connection type to Azure SQLMI target.
