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.

Having counter the number of query failbacks

If a query failbacks to Db2 for z/OS, users would like count the number of failbacks and possibly the SQL Text itself. Today, SQL Query Monitors running for Db2 for z/OS can not differentiate the executed SQL's origin. For instance

(1) SQL can be originally executed in Db2 for z/OS such as CICS App.

(2) SQL may be used with CQA = ENABLE WITH FAILBACK and query is routed back to Db2 for z/OS

Monitors are just showing the running SQL but there is no way to understand that if this SQL is running in Db2z because of (1) or (2)
