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 version 11.3 clients tier compatibility with windows 2016

Hi team ,

In our environment we currently have Datastage version 8.7 and Datastage version 11.3 installed . The clients for both of these version are installed on a windows server with version 2008.
Now these 2008 windows version servers have reached end of line and our infrastructure team is retiring these and moving to newer windows 2016 version. In next 2 months windows 2008 versions will be replaced with 2016.
We searched IBM documentation and it says 8.7 is certified till windows 2008 and DS v11.3 is certified till windows 2012.
This causes a concern for us as Datastage version 11.3 will remain for atleast next few years in our environment.
So we would like to request if IBM can certify atleast Datastage 11.3 ( to be exact ) clients on windows 2016 version that will greatly help us.
