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.

Add Replication (Q-rep and CDC) Administration functionality to Data Server Manager

We would like to see the Replication administration and monitoring capabilities added to the Data Server Manager(DSM). Today we are using Management Console to administer and monitor our IIDR CDC replication environment, replicating from z/OS DB2 to Oracle. We also support IIDR queue replication and use Replication Center and Dashboard to monitor and administer this environment. Management Console and Replication Center are currently installed on each DBA's desktop and do not provide multifactor authentication capabilities. We would like to move all replication functionality to Data Server Manager (DSM). DSM is currently our direction for all DB2 administration. DBAs also administer replication activity so DSM is a perfect fit for enabling the replication administration. This replication administration would give the DBAs one interface for their database and replication administration. It would also greatly reduce our maintenance requirements given it would be one product and would be a browser based interface for each desktop, with the software residing on a server.

    We will not be implementing this enhancement in DSM.

    We will consider this enhancement in Db2 Data Management Console.
