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.

AWS EFS CSI Driver support

We had built CP4D env on AWS. Once v4.0 release, AWS EFS is not supported. Even other cloud service's NFS storages are still supported. We heard it caused by technical limitation of EFS with NFS protocol, and CSI(Container Storage Interface) has n...

CP4D does't use limit ranges for the analytical runtime enviroments R and Python

As an application manager for analytics, I want computer resources to be used efficiently and cost-effectively. Not using limit range on openshift means that only a few data scientists can use the system because all computer resources are immediat...

Show meaningful error message when a RStudio pod can not be startet because the system cannot request the needed resources

As a Data Scientist I frequently need to start runtime environments. Often these are small enough and they quite naturally fit the available resources. Sometimes however, there is a very large environment needed. Therefore I would like to see an m...

RStudio or Python Runtime environments are automatically restarted when memory limits are reached

RStudio or Python Runtime environments are automatically restarted when memory limits are reached without any information to the data scientist and all results are gone. A better behavior would be if the application RStudio or Jupither/lab would g...

Provide use case level authorization in addition to the existing user level authorization

The idea is a use case related authorization to provide a more fine granular means than the current user based authorization. What we are looking for is that for each user the Active Directory will maintain a list of use cases the users are allowe...
