Congratulate Ben Thompson

It's been excellent to see the steady gradual march of Ben's comments through the pending ideas. It's felt like the RFE space has been a dead letter office for some time, but Ben's attention communicates that IBM has the intention of actually prioritizing these items, and maybe eventually scheduling work on some of them.

I spent a while looking for a less public venue to make this congratulations, but Ben's contact information is reasonably well obscured. :)

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you Allen for your very kind words. We're very pleased to hear that recent IBM efforts to re-review the existing set of enhancement suggestions has not gone unnoticed. Within App Connect, a small team (myself, Wayne Swales, Pradeep Sudarshan and David Crighton) spanning Product Management, Development and Service has been following a new regular review strategy for about a year now. Whilst we'd all love to be able to enhance our product set even faster, hopefully the information exchanged through these ideas also helps to give an insight into our strategic thinking and demonstrates the positive direction we're taking with App Connect which remains strongly driven by the needs of our users.

    Congratulations received ... so the status of the idea is updated to Delivered ;o)
