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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
This feature is about having native support to version data within the table. The application will always be able to access the most current data, however through pseudo columns or via other means older version of the data is available. This feature is available in other databases such as Oracle Flashback Data Archive, SQL Server Temporal tables or MariaDB System-Versioned Tables (https://mariadb.com/kb/en/system-versioned-tables/)
Currently the only way to achieve similar functionality is via triggers and stored procedures. Different development teams have different approaches to tackle it. This process is taxing, laborious and error prone (especially when alter tables are executed). Having this feature built-in offers a consistent way to store and access old versions of the data
