raise escalation to new function about RDP Overview Diagram

RSA has Overview Diagram in Database perspective about DB2 schema. But RDP didn't have. So we want to raise escalation to RDP team to add the same Overview Diagram function in RDP as RSA did.


Use Case:

COBOL programs in RDP have no use case diagram.
