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.
