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.

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...

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...

Visual Modeler interface for CPLEX in DSX

In our current DSX offering we enable programmatic access with Python API for CPLEX engine to solve optimization problems. Leveraging this capability requires a user to have deep technical and programming skills. Iterating across scenarios with mo...

Enhance .NET API for maps

When attempting to use the reflection mechanism of OPL CPLEX API under .NET (version 12.9 but same problem seen in documentation of latest version), I stumble upon an error on my first implementation of a missing method "NbDim" for the map class "...

Have atoi and itoa in OPL

Today in OPL, ftoi is quite useful to convert float to int.What would help is to do conversions between int and string in order to be able to process strings as inputs or compute inputs.What we miss is atoi and itoa

Add Java perspective in the CPLEX Studio (IDE)

As in DOC, CPLEX studio should have a perspective with Java.In the install the IDE should be ready to use CPLEX, CPO, OPL and install the Java SDK....It would make so much sense to have everything ready in one IDE OPL Java (with cplex.jar, cp.jar....

Have a line number in OPL out of bounds errors

int E[i in 1..2]=2;int n=3;dvar int x[1..2] in 0..10;subject to { E[2] >=x[3];x[1]<=2; }execute { writeln("ok") ; }gives an error but without line number.This is easy but in bigger models, it takes a lot of time to spot line numbers.

CPLEX object create by oplrun and concert shall be equal

the CPLEX object created by an OPL model is not the same as tyhe CPLEX object created with concert technology.It creates limitation and complexity that prevent people to use OPL in many cases, such advance algorithms with call backs manual cuts......
