This poll and thread is an invitation for you to give us your input on what
you'd like to see implemented for ToolXchange and ResourceXchange.


What are ToolXchange and ResourceXchange?


The ToolXchange will enable community members to upload and download functions, routines, executables etc. The functionality could be as simple as a no frills ftp site or as robust as a content management system.


The ResourceXchange will be designed to connect Data Integration Professionals with Data Integration Clients. Our plan is to create a seamless process whereby resumes, current assignment information, etc. can be submitted and reviewed while granting utmost respect to community member privacy.


We're listening and will absolutely give careful consideration to your responses. But please let us know by posting to this thread ASAP. We'd like to implement solutions in July.

I like the idea of ToolXchange, the file upload/download has proved to be very popular at DevNet and something similar should be popular here as well. I would prefer the content management approach with scores for popularity and user ratings to indicate the most useful items.

ResourceXchange sounds interesting and I think IT recruiters will be crawling all over it. I'd prefer some type of directory with a list of companies and individuals who specialise in Ascential problems with dates indicating availability for project work. I am wary of a site that attempts to upload a bunch of resumes, perhaps a few fields of summary information such as years of experience and level of competence in each Ascential product would be better.

A winner would be a decent reporting tool which hooks into the database.

A lively DataStagexchange would serve the purpose of ToolXchange.

This would definetly ehance the resources for Datastage. And it can be controlled as well.

This is what's known as a Lazarus post. The original question was put in 2004. Both sites mentioned now exist - the Newsletters appear on one of them.
