    Hi Mike,

    IBM WebSphere Automation (WSA) team appreciate you taking the time to submit a product idea.

    Submitting ideas are an invaluable tool to provide feedback for the product and influence potential future enhancements.

    For this reason, the WSA team spend considerable time to evaluate each submitted response.

    Your submitted idea covered the following for the product:

    #93 - Support WSA deployed to Power (ppc64)

    Though your idea is intriguing, it does not align with the strategic direction of the product or could not be implemented in the new twelve (12) months based on current prioritization.

    As such, your submitted idea has been moved into the “Not under consideration” state for closure.

    We apologize that your submitted idea can not be progressed further at this time.

    However, the WSA team may revisit your submitted idea in the future based on community activity and interest in your idea.

    Please note your submitted idea can continue to be commented upon by others including upvotes by the community.

    Additionally, you can comment on your submitted idea if you have any questions regarding this update.
