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.

Enhance Integrated Synchronization (InSync) to properly handle non-UTS tables when utilities are run against the base tables

InSync's predecessor (Change Data Capture) has never had a problem when utilities such as REORG were performed on non-UTS tables. As we try to convert to InSync, the majority of our replicated tables in IDAA are in legacy simple, non-UTS table spaces. Altering simple tablespaces to be of a format supported for utilities by InSync requires V12R1M508 at minimum, which many shops may not be up to (ours included). Some of the CATMAINTs to get from FL500 to FL508 require exclusive locks on the catalog, so all business activity must be quiesced, resulting in a service outage. An updated, replacement product should not be a step backwards in compatibility.
