Digital Business Automation 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

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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

HPE/Scality RING storage support with FileNet Image Services

HPE/Scality RING storage support with FileNet Image Services

Case number: TS006578461

FileNet Image Services (current version) on Solaris 11 with a remote Oracle 19c database

We are planning to migrate a storage platform for the FileNet/P8 app as follows:

From: Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) - REST API

To: HPE/Scality RING.

We need the FileNet Image Services application certified to be supported with a storage platform of "HPE/Scality RING".

We do not want to use any "gateway software" to connect to the Scality storage system.

We need to connect through the S3 REST API to store the documents in the back end storage that is a HPE/Scality RING storage system.

This will help to any customer who wants to use the standard S3 REST API to store the objects in the external storage system.

Migrating from Hitachi to Scality storage system will help to decommission the legacy storage of Hitachi.

Also, it will help to implement a modern technology of the Scality storage.
