IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

Update PHP Buildpack for Cloud Foundry to support PHP 7.3/7.4 with DB2 on the cfLinuxsf3 stack.

In order to host a PHP/DB2 application in the IBM Public Cloud, you need a Buildpack that supports the latest version of PHP & DB2. The existing buildpack only supports upto PHP 7.1, this went EOS Dec 2019. This means anyone using it to create PHP apps in the IBM Cloud are now running an unsupported version of DB2.

My actual pain point is this. I have developed a number of applications used internally. They run on the IBM Dedicated Cloud environment. But this environment is being sunset and deleted in Sept 2020. I can't migrate my applications over, because the only buildpack that supports PHP & DB2 is out of date. It supports PHP 7.1 that went EOS in Dec 2019 and the cflinuxsf2 stack. IBM Public Cloud requires support for the cflinuxsf3 stack and we really should support a supported version of PHP.
