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 (Unstructured Stage) Append Excel File with Data from a DB2 stage using RCP

This is a CRITICAL feature we need. It has stopped a project. This project is costing DST money and we are going to start looking at alternatives to replace DataStage as the solution!

    Thanks for submitting this enhancement request.

    As the request is a bit old now, we would like to check with you if you are still seeing this as a need in Datastage.

    Feel free to reach out directly to me, if you are interested in discussing this further.
