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.

connect direct windows 6.1 support MQ SQL SERVER 2019

I know that C:D Windows 6.0, 6.2 support MSSQL server2019. However, the web page still showing C:D Windows 6.1 only support MS SQL SERVER 2016. May I know C:D Windows 6.1 can support MS SQL Server 2019?

How will this idea be used?

AS SQL Server 2016 mainstream support is EOS, could we use SQL server 2019 with C:D Window version 6.1?

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we all agree that certification on SQL 2019 should be done on C:D Windows v6.1. I'm accepting this request for enhancement and we'll look to slot it into our roadmap moving forward.

    My customer also have the same question on this area. How come CDW 6.0 could support up to MS SQL 2019 but not the CDW V6.1?

    My customer uses CDW V4.8 with MS SQL 2012 and like to migrate to CDW v6.1 working with MS SQL 2019. A latest patch on this update should be done like v6.0.
