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.

Support for the CLP zLoad command

Currently, This command allows to load data only to Db2 for z/OS and not IDAA.

My idea is that the zLoad command will support for Db2 Analytics accelerator Loader for z/OS and then for example, We can load data from files residing on distributed clients directly into an accelerator only table(AOT).

Best Regards,

Ron Hameiri

    Ok, got it. I will discuss with the team. As we today are based on the Db2 Load Utility, I guess it will not be possible to support the ZLOAD Utility without any major re-design of the tool but I will check.

    Of course, But you must transfer(FTP) the files to z/OS.

    The zLoad(DRDA fast load) command enables loading of data from files that reside on distributed clients(Windows/Linux/Unix) directly into Db2 for z/OS, so we don't transfer the files to z/OS.

    Hi Ron,

    It is possible today to generate JCL that loads data from an external file into IBM Db2 Analytics Accelerator and optionally into Db2. Those JCL jobs can also be automated.

    Can you please check this current capability with regards to the limitation listed and compare with your desired use case? Thanks!

    Hi Dennis,

    Thanks for your comment.

    This support will allow us to develop, for example, an automated process that loads a file from Microsoft Windows system directly into an AOT.

    Today, Can you do that?

    How would this differ from todays capability to load data from external file?
