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.

Official CP4D(WKC) Sizing guideline is desired

Official CP4D(WKC) Sizing guideline is desired . Here’s the reasons:

1)Customer encountered performance issue months ago when running auto data-discovery with big tables in WKC. We had ever suggested customer to increase cpu and memory after running out option for tuning various parameters. But Customer has no idea how many resources should be purchased and requests IBM to provide guideline on sizing. We didn’t find official one at that time and only provided customer a temporary workaround solution instead.

2)Now, customer is planning to scale up the CP4D infrastructure, which pulls us back to the same dilemma. Customer requests the same guideline regarding how much resource should be increased based on needs/requirements (such as, the number of tables/rows/columns/data rules ). thereby, they can use it as an evidence to request budget accordingly

Do we have one that we can formally share with customer? Pls advise,

Best Regards,
