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 this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you
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 Power teams 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 notification 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.

Command (CRTCMD) to also run SQL stored procedures and functions
Today you can create commands to be used from command line and build them into CL programs. CL commands works as parameter wrappers and calls programs.
It will be great if the command concept also could be extended to be able to directly call SQL stored procedures and SQL functions
Today you can do this by creating a program that calls the procedure, however it is a necessary step that only acts a boilerplate. It will be much cleaner to simply invoke the stored procedure directly from a OS command.
Note that the RTVVAR feature of commands is important to get data back from procedures and functions
