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.

Sterling 9.5 compatibility with Oracle 19C

Oracle 12C is going on extended support. Most of the latest technology stack (including OMS 10 )supports the latest version of Oracle DB. Its very important to test and certify the compatibility of OMS 9.5 with Oracle 19C.

How will this idea be used?

If OMS 9.5 is certified with the latest version of Oracle. the product will continue to be relevant. Else, if 12C becomes out of support, then there would be no use to have Oracle DB as an option for OMS DB. Many clients are using OMS with Oracle as DB.

    We understand that the user community desires to upgrade to a higher version of Oracle for various reasons. In an attempt to support our customers in the best way possible, IBM will support Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (including Oracle Database 19c) with Order Management v9.5.

    IBM does not retroactively certify higher versions of stack products, but supports field use where the product corresponding to the next available release is used (e.g. in Sterling Order Management Version 10). This support is subject to customers doing thorough risk reduction testing prior to using the newer version in production.

    NOTE: It is the customer's responsibility to test their solution end-to-end with all system functionality, including a full performance test, before deploying this version of Oracle to production.

    Agreed with the Idea, and we are also looking for this OMS95 certification with Oracle 19C RAC at the earliest.
