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.

Remove constand offset variable if it equals zero

Exporting an LP-file creates a fixed variable representing a constant offset. For many users, this is often zero, so it shuld be optional or not appearing if the offset is zero.cf. https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=...

Dump Data into file with Setting

Being able to export the external data of a model to a .dat file with one click.I suggest an option in the .ops under language/Run.The best would be to right click on the .dat file (with the connection to file, DB or Excel) and have an export opti...

Implementation of iif indicator constraint in C API

We would like to be able to implement if-and-only-if indicator constraints in the C API.

Resolve race condition in CP optimizer engine

We've run into what seems to be a race condition in the cp optimizer engine with multiple workers. The issue occurs when a worker finds the initial solution right around the time limit. In this case, the engine believes that it timed out, but it a...

Time to Best

I want to put your attention on the optimization concept called "time to best" (ttb), i.e. the time needed by an optimization procedure to find the best solution regardless of the total time needed by its complete execution.Anyone working in the o...

Implement piecewise linear features in Matlab API.

As for all the other APIs, it would be great to add to be able to describe PWLs with the new features introduced from 12.7.0, also in Matlab. The procedure to write several PWLs can become quite cumbersome for a large amount of constraints.

Human-readable status response

In the new multiobjective optimization support in CPLEX (Java API, but likely true in other APIs), querying status via IloCplex.getMultiObjInfo(IloCplex.MultiObjIntInfo.MultiObjStatus, ...) returns a numeric code (e.g. 107). This is difficult to i...

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...

Interface between CPLEX and FORTRAN

Since FORTRAN is one of the TOP20 programming languages in the TIOBE index (https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/), I suggest that IBM create mixed-integer linear programming models with CPLEX and FORTRAN. I have not found a library similar to Conce...
