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.

Allow the ability to query the metadata stored from data discovery - or provide canned reports

Our data stewards have to filter through thousands of tables and columns to determine authoritative data that we want to ingest into our Unified Data Fabric we are building in Cloud Object Storage. Having he ability to query output from data discovery would greatly assist in focusing on a smaller list of columns to curate the data and determine authoritative data.

Here are the data tabs they would like to query...
- Column Properties

- Data Quality

- Rules

- Data Classes

- Governance

- Data Types

- Formats

- Frequency Distribution

    Hi David, thank you for submitting the idea. Do you mind elaborating on your use case a bit more? I don't quite follow the flow you have in mind.

    Are you trying to filter on the metadata from data discovery to identify list of assets to add to your unified data catalog?

    In WKC catalogs, columns are handled within their data asset. We don't store columns as separate individual assets.
