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.

PLC Process not updating DB in a timely manner

We need same this functionality in v7.2 as well

IBM development team has analyzed the PLC data loading issue where the recovery time is large. The solution is a large Project level effort that requires change in PLC behavior.

The proposed enhancement is to:
1. write backup file until reach max size
2. when recovery, read more lines from backup until reach MaxBatchSize

This should reduce/remove the need for the tool since there will be less files especially since your MaxBatchSize is 5000.
