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.

    I’m pleased to update you that we have completed the testing of both MDM Collaborative Edition and MDM Advanced Edition and can confirm support for Oracle RDS running on AWS. We will shortly be updating our product documentation and the Software Product Compatibility Matrix to reflect these changes.

    We will support this database on v11.6 and higher for any version of Oracle that we support in MDM 11.6. Testing was completed using our most recent Advanced Edition Feature Pack, and Collaborative Edition Feature Pack, Please review this technote if you intend to use version 28 of the Oracle driver:

    Hi Srikanth

    Thank you for your submission. Were you intending to submit this under our MDM Managed Offering on IBM Cloud? If so, this is not something we would support.

    I have assumed this was intended to be submitted under IBM MDM Advanced and Standard Edition offerings. Our current support policy for Oracle on Amazon is summarized in this Tech Note on the IBM Support site:
