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.

Data Virtualization : Ability to edit joined tables query and synchronize linked catalog and projects asset

We use the data virtualization component of CP4D to connect to external datasources and link them to internal datasources. We virtualize these data and join different virtualized tables (internal + external) to each other. Then we publish the virtualized view to the catalog and assign it to the related project(s) for usage in our notebooks.

Once a virtualized join is created, we can't change the underlying query. Suppose we made a mistake, or we want to add a filter or add a user-defined calculation, this can't be done by simply editing the virtualized join and changing its definition.

In order to do this currently, we need to create a new virtualized join and manually do all the necessary steps to update the related catalog assets and projects assets.
