Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
We use the Relational Archive Facility in IBM's InfoSphere Optim z/OS Solution to archive and then purge the data. We have created Access Definitions (AD) and each AD has a set of tables with SQL WHERE clause for some of them for extracting the data. Optim doesn't have the capability to run a SQL query with joins between multiple tables. It can only extract data from one table with condition defined in the WHERE clause
Our business requirement is to run a SQL query like this to extract the data from the driving table in an Access Definition (AD).
(SELECT * FROM LPAHCA.PAYMASTR PAY INNER JOIN LPAHCA.PAEMPLOYEE PAE ON PAE.COMPANY = PAY.COMPANY AND PAE.EMPLOYEE = PAY.EMPLOYEE LEFT OUTER JOIN LPARFO.LEGALHOLD LEG ON STRIP(PAE.COMP_NBR,"B") = STRIP(LEG.COMP_NBR,"B") WHERE YEAR(PAY.CHECK_DATE) = 2008 AND LEG.COMP_NBR IS NULL);
