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.

We request product support for C: D on IBM i on PowerVS.

We are seriously considering running IBM i on IBM cloud, and the lack of product support for C:D running on IBM i on PowerVS become a major barrier.

I think that the behavior of IBM i on PowerVS is the same as physical server, so please support C: D on PowerVS.

I believe that support of IBM products on the cloud have a huge impact as a strategy for the IBM cloud.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and had discussions with the PowerVS team. In that call they verified that Power VS was simply an IBM hosted option to run i5 systems. Due to that clarification we can support C:D for i5/OS in the same way we would with a locally hosted system with no changes needed from a C:D perspective.
