IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

A customer that has purchased Analytic Server uses Hive Views in order to deliver data from their Hadoop environment (Hortonworks) to the end users via Modeler. In the program's documentation it is stated that Hive Views are not supported as a datasource, even at the latest version (v3.2.1).
The customer has stated that there is no way they will change their current Hive views implementation, therefore the program is not useful to them, so they tare asking a refund of their investment.

    Thanks for the suggestion. All data source types (such as Hive SQL) that are based on Hive views are supported except Hcatalog, since we dropped Hcatalog in CDH 6.x. Does that suffice?
