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.

    Hi, I'm asking Optim development if they have other documentation.

    In general, there is documentation about Lua for Optim Distributed, including more sample programs, but I don't think there is a lot more. Also there is separate documentation about Lua (not Optim Lua). This is generally available with a Google search, since Lua is an open source language.

    My Developper customers consume a lot a valuable time with the writing and debug of LUA procedure.

    The only documentation is the samples in SFOPSAMP(FOPLUA*)

    Please, help us LUA Red books [for dummies?]
