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.

Request IDAA V7 Container code via Shop Z and SMP

Today, V7 container code for both IIAS and Z are downloaded from Fix Central. It is a different download and website than normal Stored Procedure and other Db2 related maintenance PTFs. Some customers have download issues such as download runs for hours and get almost complete (99%) and stop then fail. They also have to get a coworker to download around the firewall and move it to a shared drive. This also leaves customer with no automated way to back out the software if there is an error.

    Will not consider this as an option as there is an option to download from FixCentral directly to z/OS.
