IBM Power Ideas Portal

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 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,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to 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 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.

.NET Core requested on Linux on Power


We are in a situation where our Warehouse application (Consafe/Astro) will move from AIX to Linux (x86) due to usage of .NET Core for their application development.

I need to .NET Core to run on Linux on Power (RHEL 7.n/8) ppc64le so we can still run the application on Power Systems to gain all the benefits from Power Systems. We have like 40+ sites today running all warehouse parts on S822/S922 fully virtualized (of course) and would like to continue using/reusing Power systems.

    Well, now when .NET 6 is supported on Mainframe... this is more or less a must!

    Although we are not able to commit at this time, the team recognizes the validity of this request and is evaluating how to get this done.

    How can I make this RFE public or at least make it possible for upvotes?
    Cant find anything on the Jazz site either.
