This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Thank you for your patience as this enhancement request waited in the Connect:Direct backlog for resource to become available. We initially planned to deliver direct HDFS access via Connect:Direct, but upon further review don't believe that it would be the best use of resources.
The modern storage market appears to have shifted away from Hadoop and towards cloud object storage. Because of this we have focused our investment there and believe that Hadoop storage requirements has become less relevant. Because of that shift in market interest I will need to update this request to move it from an Uncommitted Candidate to a Declined status as I don't believe we'll be able to deliver it within 2 years. I'm sorry to change directions on this request, but believe it will likely be the best use of resources.
