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.

Improved information/feedback regarding pushback to users.

It is desired that Modeler documentation contain more detailed discussion of what nodes or node functions are supported with pushback when working with Analytic Server,  specifically as it relates to what nodes pushback only to Analytic Server and which nodes will pushback to the cluster itself with respect to different data sources (HDFS/Hive/HCatalog/BigSQL/etc).  Currently it comes as a surprise to users when a node properly pushes back to Analytic Server, but not fully back to the entire cluster and they see reduces performance from their expectations, perhaps based on the data source used.


Further to this the SQL Preview button currently provides feedback indicating if the nodes in the stream support pushback to Analytic Server or not, but do not color the stream as is seen when using ODBC data sources.  Colored visual feedback for AS data sources would be a plus, perhaps using one color to indicate AS pushback and yet another to indicate full pushback to the underlying data source (i.e. past AS).
