Vote for me! Replication Enhancement to Support ASM

IBM recently introduced the Data and AI ideas portal for clients where users are invited to request enhancements.   And vote on them – sort of like voting for class president.

I submitted a request earlier today for the addition of Oracle ASM support in IBM InfoSphere Data Replication/Change Data Capture.  I did this because I was introduced to an Oracle customer currently using Informatica replication who needs to find an alternate replication solution, as Informatica is moving replication to the cloud.

IBM’s replication solutions are quite strong compared to other vendor options.  The list of ICDC supported database sources and targets continues to grow, with Postgres and Kafka being recent additions.

I think IBM should continue to enhance ICDC by adding support for ASM so we can introduce more Oracle customers to ICDC.

PLEASE!  Vote for my enhancement – I believe it’s I-83 at this link.  It’s currently in “under consideration” status so I may need to update the link when I have confirmed it’s available for voting.

I’ll post some signs up in the hall announcing my enhancement’s candidacy.  Vote early and vote often!!  Thank you for your support!!
