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.

DSM: Improved Blackout functionality

Several enhancements to the current blackout functionality of DSM:
- Option for Blackout time: NOW so that there no hassle about the minutes till it is saved etc.
- Most important information is the database but this information is provided on the last tab
- Blackout events whoich where valid in its specification must not stay unconsidered in the planned events (a recheck should be implemented to activate it if it was miussed for whatever reason at the official start time)
- Backout time should be in 24h format

    Hello, thank you for submitting the Idea. We will not be considering this Idea for Data Server Manager. However, we took your Ideas into consideration when building Blackouts feature in Db2 Data Management Console, which is the follow-up product for Db2 for LUW. The blackouts feature will be available in DMC 3.1.5.
