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.

Application Continuity for Data Stage - Oracle DB 19c

The Oracle 12.2 version has a feature called 'Application Continuity'. Application Continuity is used to improve the user experience when handling both unplanned outages and planned maintenance. It masks outages from end users and applications by recovering the in-flight work for impacted database sessions following outages. Application Continuity performs this recovery beneath the application so that the outage appears to the application as a slightly delayed execution. 

The impact for this will be for anybody who is connecting Data Stage to an Oracle database 12.2 version.

    Oracle 19c is a good option for us ( with Data Stage 11.7 )

    Given that Oracle 12c is going out of support soon, we can consider certifying this for oracle 19c (the one advised by Oracle, to be the long term support release for 12c, as you can see here Are you considering an upgrade of the database on your side, or is 12c a mandatory requirement here?

    Best Regards,
