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.

DataStage Designer - Fields for Siebel Business Objects or Components returning wrong values

This issues has been experienced on both InfoSphere Information Server 11.5 and After submitting an IBM PMR to try to resolve the issues the final response from IBM Support was:

Our Engineering team reviewed the issue and have advised that Siebel BCP stage is not certified with Siebel Innovation pack 2019. It is suggested that you can raise an AHA request for IBM to consider this certification and during certification we can address any issues if found.

You can submit product enhancement request at the following web link:

After the AHA request has been raised, please allow sometime and do feel free to follow up with IBM Sales team for future updates.

This request is to suggest the certification of Siebel Innovation pack 2019 so it works with at least with InfoSphere Information Server 11.7.1. onwards.

    After analysis, Siebel 2019 is not available any longer for us to certify against.

    Oracle is removing from the market any earlier than the latest two releases. their recommendation is to move to the latest available patch on a monthly basis.

    Because of that, we cannot implement the certification for Siebel 2019, and we will work on certifying Siebel 2021 instead.

    Thanks for submitting this idea. We are working on analysing it, and we plan to support Siebel 2019 for BCP stage in the coming months (on a future version of Information server).

    Given that 11.5 went out of support in last april, we are not considering to bring support for this datasource on that version of Datastage.
