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.
Allow Archive to convert to CSV without license for Test Data
We have to provide files extracts for areas in the business. We would like to have the ability to give a CSV file extract of the data. Currently, you have to have a different license to run Optim Convert. We would like to be able to run Optim Convert for an archive file to a CSV file without requiring the additional license. We do not need the column map function. Only the ability to convert to CSV. The functions you provide for LOBs and to split the file is also very good for that. We would want the ability to use that as well. The only item I would change is the requirement on the table map to select a DBALIAS. In our case, the DBALIAS does not exist anymore and never did on the server where the archive is stored. It does not make sense for a convert option since you are not mapping it to a database - only a CSV file.
