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.

Provide an interface to manage System Profiles

System profiles were introduced as long ago as DB2 9, and have been successively enhanced in every release since then. They provide a range of capabilities, including setting ZPARMs at a more granular level, production modelling in test systems, managing application-specific behaviour , setting global variables, directing DDF applications to particular collections. This is managed by 2 tables and 2 history tables requiring DML to maintain. The use of profiles has and is becoming well used and a key utilised component of Db2. V13 is adding even more capability . What would be desirable is a user friendly interface to view, manage active profiles along and create new profiles. Currently tools like TBEDIT or other SQL tools are used but have at your fingertips a quick link to reflect current active profiles .
