IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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

Post ideas and requests to enhance a 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 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 product management team 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.

Reminder: This is not the place to submit defects or support needs, please use normal support channel for these cases

WML multiprocessing support

Multiprocessing using Pythons multiprocesing library works with Notebooks in Watson Studio, but not for deployed WML models. Multiprocessing for DOCPLEX MILP models can significantly reduce time and resources used for solving a set of several mode...

Automatic sync between notebook and Model Builder Python code

Avoid the frequent and confusing reinitialize of the Model Builder Python code and the source notebook by automatically updating the Model Builder Python code from the notebook.

Bring back the refresh-from-notebook button

In past versions of DO4DSX, there was something like 'refresh from notebook' button in the 'Run Model' tab of the Model Builder.Since the last few releases, that refresh link disappeared. Now I need to reinitialize the model, select the right note...

DOC-like row filters for table views in DO

Have the ability to create a set of filters on a table view that:a. As a set of filters that each can be added, edited and removed.b. Are persistent, i.e. do not disappear when switching views. c. Can be enabled/disabledd. Include logic like `cont...

Jupyter notebook as a DO dashboard page

Similar to using a notebook as a source for optimization code, allow the user to write a notebook that contains visualization components for a dashboard page.Ideally, have an ability per cell to hide the cell, the output or both from the dashboard...

Business ready dashboard sharing

The dashboard exported from DO for DSX is currently a json file. The business user has no way of easily opening and reviewing the dashboard. Ideally the dashboard should be packaged in a way that is directly consumable from the business user witho...

Reusable Gantt chart for Python models

Provide interactive Gantt that can easily connect to a Python CPLEX model, without writing code for the Gantt. (see e.g. how SPSS Modeler provides reusable and configurable visuals inside their new UI, we are looking for a similar experience, i.e...

Support user-defined Python module

I would like to maintain a set of Python functions and classes in a separate model/script, then do an import from that module in a notebook and DO4DSX model.Use cases:* I want to move complex function definitions out of my notebook. The functions ...

Support custom installed Python libraries

DO for DSX seems to not support custom installed Python libraries.I installed a Python library for performance profiling in the notebook for my optimization model using '!pip install yappi'.The notebook runs fine, but when importing as model, the ...
