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.

Have GEN and DDL generate Implicit objects but have them commented out for future use if needed

A Case was opened with IBM for GOC batch. Support could never recreate it using the DDL which was provided. It was later found out that this DB had implicit objects. The implicit objects in the DDL member provided were never generated. I am purposing generating the implicit objects so that GOC batch could successfully compare them when using DDL - DB2. The user would only have to uncomment the Implicit objects in the DDL dataset. This AHA also is for GOC batch to successfully be able to compare DDL - DB2 implicit objects or DDL - DDL when that gets fixed.
