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.

Automatically Perform a Display with Claimers when Utilities Cannot Perform a Drain on an Object

We recently migrated from BMC Utilities for Db2 to IBM Utilities. One feature that is sorely missed is that when the BMC Utilities would fail to drain because other processes had a claim on the object, BMC Utilities would perform a display with claimers on the affected objects for research later.

This would be extremely helpful for much of our current processing, where a main driver job will kick off several child jobs with multiple loads stacked on top of each other. If there are failures in the child jobs, we won't be alerted until control passes back to the main driver job.
