Inventory demand and Supply entries should not be made to additional tables for Non Hot items after enabling hot sku

It is not acceptable to have record put into the additional tables for items that are not hot. We are this behaviour after enabling the Hotsku feature in 9.3. 

All the items are marked as having infinite inventory but the demand is being synced with IBM cloud IV.  Kroger has 80K order coming in with 40 lines per order and have 200k  + items in catalog and since the demand need to go to IV and its only possible once the additional demand entries are consolidated and also due to the large volume of change and since the consolidate additional inventory agent will not be able to catch up with new entries being made  and finally end up having the inventory sync ineffective.


What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Once the enhancement is implemented then only we can effectively sync demand with IV.
