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.
We have been working with Scott Brokaw from Software Engineer, Advanced Support Team on refining BigIntegrate PXEngine binary push to possibly include DB2 client libraries. As an offshoot of this, we discuss making BigIntegrate more intelligent at start up time if a previously available drive from a data node becomes unavailable during a subsequent execution. Currently the BigIntegrate jobs will fail, but we want to see BigIntegrate identify this condition and mark the data node as unavailable until such time that the binaries are restored. Scott has informed us that an IBM development task has been opened to address this, but felt it might prove useful to have this tracked on the Aetna side through the RFE process.
