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.

DB2 BLU limitations on LUW

We have 10.3 data mart running LUW 10.1 on linux. The mart is 98% read only with a small batch cycle that updates the mart with real time updates. We want to move this to BLU for the performance. Most fo the schema we change with oit issue.
We ran into a blocker with the GENERATE ALWAYS on the Column attribute. All of out tables ( in schema) require a Timestamp, the time the ROW WAS ENTERED in the mart. ( current TS) The only fix i can see would be a coding change. This may BLU dead in the water based on alrg amount of work to the application
