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.

Improving QREP online operation

ABC(Agriculture Bank of China) have implemented A-A based on QREP. Due to its huge number of data volume, the maintenance related to A-A is extreme complex. The more easy operation of QREP the more maintenance convenience.
1. In some case, certain key parameters related to QM and QREP need to be altered but they can't take effect online(by now, the Capture or Apply related to altered parms must be restarted), just like trans_batch_sz, etc. We suggest the QREP and MQ key parameters can be take effect online.
2. The operation steps to adjust the table subscription from one CG to another one is complex(It need stop and restart QREP). We suggest IBM qrep lab can improve the subscription mechanism in order to make it true that adjusting the table subscription from one CG to another one online.
