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 dbschema to Informix CSDK

Developers have the Informix Client SDK installed on their workstations / application development machines.

There is the need to be able to dump the Informix databases schemas definitions, but the SDK does not provide any such tool.

To work around the issue, we have to either use 3rd party tools, give the developers shell access to the Informix server or install the server binaries on the developer machines.

 

If the dbschema tool is bundled in the Informix Client SDK, the need for the workarounds is avoided.

    Note that you can use my free dbschema replacement tool, myschema, on any client or server. I will do everything that dbschema can do (and MUCH more) except for the -hd option to display data distributions.
