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.

Request for Rollup Security Updates for infoSphere DataStage

Updating InfoSphere DataStage server to keep WAS ND and WLP components, Java, DB2, etc... updated with respect to security is a nightmare. Updates are released in a confusing wave of updates, service packs, etc...
Just as you create a bundled Installation that helps get the various tiers installed, please create a twice a year update process that bundles the latest security updates across all bundled products. It can identify and update installed Products on each tier. Your customers and their security departments would love you for doing this !
Understand you might not make these available for older versions, but would be great to start with 11.7 InfoSphere DataStage Server.
I was searching for InfoSphere DataStage server in the list of Products, but IT was not available, so I chose InfoSphere Data Integration. Not sure if that is correct, but I trust this request can be transferred within InfoSphere group as necessary.
Thanks you for your time.
