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
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 notifications 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.
Enhanced functional maps navigation in studio
In complex mappings, it is sometimes hard to navigate across multiple levels of functional maps. Developers' life would be easiser if they could get back to the place where they were before going to a given function map
Support SFTP as a file transfer option for deployments from IFD
My IT shop has moved away from FTP in favor of SFTP for all internal file transfers between servers. The Integration Flow Designer (IFD) within the WTX Design Studio only supports FTP as the sole file transfer protocol when utilizing the deploymen...
ISO8601 week of year format
WTX meaning of WW format is different from ISO8601 week of year format . Most of the world used ISO8601 week of year format , can this be added to WTX date/time formats?
Request for debugger in Map Editor
I was developing the map and it broke the whole system. Upon requesting for for information regarding the process, I was told that because the issue is not with the map editor but with the map, every thing is fine and ticket should be closed. I ha...
new function: SORTUP by item
Currently SORTUP can only handle the whole data structure as a long string, i.e. sort by the first item of this structure. Thus sorting by a different item than the 1st one is a complicated task in WTX: 1. create a new structure, putting the sort ...
WTX-Plugin: 64bit EXIT() call
While WTX is available in 64bit, its C-API (runmerc.h) remained 32bit. This leads to a bottleneck. WTX mappings without C-API EXIT() calls work with huge files (>4GB), but WTX mappings that make use of the C-API EXIT() call can handle 1.9GB onl...
WebSphere Extreme Scale Adapter
Many validation and enrichment applications require database lookup. If the data is accessed very often, performance will be degraded. Having the ability to read from WebSphere Extreme Scale cache will solve this problem.
PDF/Excel adapters allowing the production of PDF/Excel files without needing the file system
We use ITX to perform transformation as a service. However, since we are a hosted environment and running ITX embedded within ITXA, file system access is not an option. We would like to be able to use ITX to produce PDF and Excel files using the P...
Version information for compiled map
In my opinion each map shold have some kind of header, which include some information as version, time and date when was build or maybe other. This information should be readble from binary map by command server e.g.
