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.

Product support for Infosphere MDM verions installed on Nutanix

We have adopted Nutanix as our chosen on premises infrastructure

hypervisor technology and the lack of support for this platform is concerning

and may prevent us migrating to the latest software version (currently

9.7). Any future plans for supporting this infrastructure environment will be beneficial

    Hi Chalka,

    After further research from the team, based on the compatibility between VMware ESXi (which we already support) and Nutanix, we can comfortably claim support for Nutanix (even without further testing).

    I am sorry about all the confusion that this has caused. Hope this is great news at the end.

    Hi Chalka,

    We don't have any plan on supporting MDM native installs on Nutanix hypervisors.

    However, for MDM Containers, once OpenShift supports Nutanix, we will revisit MDM's support for Nutanix, again for MDM Containers only, NOT for MDM native installs.
