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.

IMAM improvements IS v11.5

The way that the tool handles some technologies, ie Informix, SQLServer, etc. by doing imports at the database rather than the server level we are going to be exploding our number of Import areas and database connections to a point where the tool will not perform. In addition to just the performance of returning the import areas or connections in the lists in the UI there is an issue with only being able to maintain things like Import Areas, Data Connections, or Implementation Relationships one at a time. If I need to delete multiple Import areas . Same issue for relationships between model assets and implementing data assets – one at a time with a refresh between. Connections work the same way, the UI or at least the command line should allow for doing these in mass. Also the ability to audit my import areas – ie a way to easily get a list of all the import areas or import areas that meet some criteria via a command line type interface.
