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.
Metrics for this product shoul be provided as regular SMF collection for historical and monitor reasons
While metrics are provided using CDA Tool, it requires the user to activate the data collection and thre is no mechanism for the product to provide a more historial data gathering. Also thre is no way to automatically see trends other than manual intervention.
All the metrics data collected by the GUI sholud formally be collected to SMF based on customer data interval collection criteria. Manual processes are too dependent on a person to collect that data, also even in the GUI that collected data has to exported. The TARGET and SOURCE already have that data but is not been kept like other products do on the mainframe.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
