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.

Support for using NoSQL DB's

We are publishing extremely high amount of daily events and moving the data store into a NoSQL type DB would provide greater efficient and search speeds.

How will this idea be used?

We support multiple NoSQL db's and have the ability to migrate from traditional DB to a NoSQL one.  Have the more advance structuring the DB would greatly improve the performance of control center and potentially allow for active/active solutions

    Thank you for your response. We will be considering supporting NoSQL database along with modernizing the architeture to support high volumes in future.

    Mongo or Cassandra, but our volume puts stress on the Oracle DB which requires constant maintenance.

    What NoSQL databases are you using?

    Would like a noSQL DB as an alternate to using Oracle or DB2. Our event volume is quite high and creates problems when running reports, API calls or UI access. noSQL db's can dynamically grow much faster with minimal impact to performance.

    Thanks for submitting - could you elaborate on how you expect to use noSQL DB with ICC. Whether it's an organizational mandate, preference or strategic direction.
