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
