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.

JCL Only

We have many similiar Db2 Subsystems and often have the Need to create e.g. UNDO records if a Job has run with a false control Statement or other mistakes and therefore inserts, changes oder deletes the false records.

Now you have to go thought the Panels and generate the Job for the "DB2 LOG ANALYSIS TOOL". Some of the Parameters are within the JCL some are in the MODE35 MODEFILE or even somewhere else.

This is a very time consuming and annoying Task.

What we expect is to generate this Job once. All controll Parameters are written to the jcl. Then we could use this job as a skelleton. For alle other Subsystems, we just have to Change some Parameters, e.g. SSID, time, Jobname etc.

If this solution is implented we even could add or delete some control parameters as needed. We would be able to prepare some sort of Jobs in advance, so that collegues who are not experts in this tool could use them.

A competetive tool has implemented that feature.
