This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Currently we use Visual Studio Code for all development activities. Visual Studio Code acts as a single workstation. It is rich in libraries and plugins for distributed environments and Cloud environments. By using the ZOWE plug in, we can connect to z/OS as well.
Currently Visual Studio Code supports access to DB2 for z/OS but not access for IMS databases.
Currently we need to use multiple tools to verify the data flow for end-to-end testing.
Since we are able to configure access to IMS DB in DVM, if a DVM plug were available in Visual Studio Code it would be so much easier to monitor the data flow from end to end in development and QA environments across all platforms.
If DVM were integrated into Visual Studio Code or if there were an IMS DB plug in Visual Studio Code then that would provide easy to access the IMS DB and MQ.
All data across all platforms (z/OS, Distributed and Cloud) would be available in one workstation.
Simplification of development and QA testing.
Improved efficiencies and increased productivity for developers and testers on a daily basis.
