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.
This functionality is beneficial for B2Bi Business Process performance when document extraction results in a large number of split documents. BP execution can be slow if many split documents are written to Process Data which can be avoided by using this parameter in conjunction with the for each document service.
Here is the IBM documentation from native SBI Document Extraction service:
Specifies whether split documents will be stored in process data or in the business process context. Valid values are:
The PDToProcessData parameter can be used to improve performance by reducing the overhead associated with persisting large process data information.
The major performance improvement is realized at the current step (Document Extraction) and each subsequent step by persisting a much smaller process data which does not contain multiple split documents. By using the For Each Document service in conjunction with PDToProcessData = No, only the current document is on process data. this avoids repetitive writing of non-current documents. Once documents are in the SplitDocs array, they can be retrieved only by using the For Each Document service.

How will this idea be used?
This functionality would help to avoid performance impacts of writing many split documents to SBI's Process Data after document extraction.
