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.

Components Q Replication for Z

Removed forced Requirement to force Replication Center to only run wit IBM JDK/JRE

Citigroup has a rule that only JDK/JRE that are supported by Citi are allowed to be used on all products that are packaged for general users. Currently the internal packaging team at Citi striped the IBM JDK/JRE from a Data Server Client 11.1.2. As a result of that action Replication Center cannot be started, we will have to request a deviation to be able to package the client. But IBM needs to removed that hard requirement and allow Replication Center use the customer standard JDK/JRE that the customer supports. We are requesting this to be remediated on a future release of Replication Center.

    Thanks for filing this requirement.

    We think that the requirement is valid, but the work has not yet been prioritized.

    We need to evaluate the effort involved and potentially feedback from other clients.

    We will provide further updates as the evaluation progresses.
