IBM Sterling Ideas

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.

B2Bi application should automatically sync with the system time during DST change, without application re-start

Currently, we are re-cycling the B2B SI application in-order to sync the application time with system time during Daylight Savings (DST). Customer is not happy to bounce the application for time change during DST, re-cyling the application is impacting their business during the down time. It would be more value added if our product have feature like sync with system time automatically without re-cycle during DST.

Here are our current system configurations:

B2B SI version: 5.2.5_17_HF2

OS Version: Sun Solaris

Note: We are going to migrate the existing B2Bi server to 5.2.6_4 on RHEL, so it would be great if the above issue can be fixed in this version as well in our new releases.

Thank You

How will this idea be used?

By adding this DST change as a feature in SI, it eliminates human intervention to re-cycle the B2Bi application during Daylight savings Time change. This will also help the customers to avoid unnecessary system down time.
