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.

OPL csv import/export

Generating .dat is not that elegant.Importing/exporting from Excel is slow.Csv format is often used for other applications as well.

Dantzig-Wolf-decomposition with CPLEX

Extend the CPLEX-API to let reformulate a problem by CPLEX, notably a problem - which could be solved efficiently by a DW-decomposition. It should be reformulated by CPLEX to a problem (its dual) which could be solved by CPLEX's benders algorithm....

Ease call, edit, debug, and monitor OPL / CPLEX models within DSX

OPL is a much simpler way than Python for optimization modeling and today we provide only https://twitter.com/AlexFleischer1/status/909759411484274689 If we had a simpler way OPL / CPLEX customers could move their models to DSX and DSX data s...

CPLEX: Make adding mulitple objectives consistent with adding one objective

In the Java API for CPLEX (presumably similar in other APIs), it is possible to create an objective and add it to a model in one function call, using overloads of IloCplexModeler.addMinimize() and .addMaximize() that take an IloNumExpr argument. D...

Nonlinear solver for CPLEX

Add nonlinear optimization capability to CPLEX. Many real-life models are nonlinear by nature. CPLEX solver requires a linear model to work. A good nonlinear solver can often times overperform a linearized form of a real-life model. Having a nonli...

More consistent handling of .csv data when manually duplicating/creating scenarios

Problem statement/pain points: When creating a new scenario via duplicating an existing one manually (not using Python code), there appear to be currently two ways to make a change to input data in a table of the new scenario: 1) change data dir...

Ability to add/remove rows in "Input Data" tables in Model Builder

Use case: I duplicate a scenario in the "Scenarios" panel. The scenario I'd like to test involves adding/removing one data point, e.g. adding a new machine in the predictive maintenance model or taking that machine out of service by removing it. ...

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...
