IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Datastage Anywhere SOFTWARE (not aaS on IBM Cloud) remote data plane - remove or no longer require OpenShift

Anywhere 5.0 requires OpenShift under the remote dataplanes.  In discussions with PM and develooment, the need to be able for the RDP on "plain" Kubernetes/Docker rather rather than requiring OpenShift under the RDP on 5.0.  Discussion/question to development mgt indicates that this will be completed and supported prior to 5.1.  (it was said somewhere in 5.01 to 5.03) and that this is mostly a matter of testing and certification rather than new code being needed.  Need to get a commit on a date for this for the customer
