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.

Bring MATLAB interface back for CPLEX

Please bring back the MATLAB interface for CPLEX. We rely heavily on this feature since toolboxes we use are Matlab exclusive.

Replacement for DB Link to allow sensible database access from OPL

DB Link functionality was removed from version 12.7 and this prevents the sensible accessing of databases from OPL by removing the availability of DBConnection, DBRead, DBUpdate and DBExecute.Whilst there were various issues and bugs with the data...

new DBlink for cplex OPL optimization studio

Dear developers. I thought that this idea either was already posted or perhaps is considered inside other idea related with ODX, but anyway I do want to ensure that next enhancement to cplex optimization studio get done: until opl 12.6.3. the fetc...

OPL model generation with multithreating

the OPL model generation uses only 1 core and it takes time.with a pre analysis of the model it could be possible to parallelize some of the model generation.

OPL interface for Matlab

Would be great to have not only a Matlab interface to CPLEX, but to OPL as well. It would facilitate. model deisgn (.mod) using OPL (way easier than working directly with CPLEX. model modification, re-run, post/pre-processing computations using a ...

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...

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...

IBM Z Common Data Provider template for the User Define SMF Record Type 249 cut by DVM

The customer is using IBM Z Common Data Provider (zCDP) to stream SMF records in real-time to their Splunk. zCDP provides policies for all the non user define SMF records, the SMF249 is a user define record, hence zCDP can't reference o it, so it ...

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...
