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.

Data Flow Designer GitHub/BitBucket Integration

We are using bitbucket through command line for all our code migration activities. We were hoping to see Data Flow Designer provide a UI based integration with BitBucket and GitHub.

However the gap is that for the connectivity to work, GIT needs space on the services tier to clone the local repository.

We have grid and big integrate platforms with a 3 or 4 tier topoligy with services running on smaller virtual or baremetal servers which do not have access to large storage or to the shared file systems that engine nodes have. This was also not mentioned in any design requirements during then initial build of the platforms. So there has to be a mechanism to shift this addtional storage overhead from the services tier to the engine tier.
