IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).


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:


Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

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 dat...

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 ...

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 ...

read solution from cpo file

For CP-Optimizer, it would be great to have the ability to read a given solution from a file and pass it to a cpo model as a starting point and also enable to check this solution feasibility

Run optimization solver invocations in parallel

Extract from SAS PROC OPTMODEL COFOR new feature:Be able to run optimization solver invocations in parallel, in iterations of a concurrent FOR loop that is specified using the COFOR statement. The COFOR statement operates in the same manner as the...

Calling external .NET code from OPL

Offers a way to interact with external code written in .NET from OPL.This feature would allow us to:• write a complex dedicated OR algorithm (such as a shortest path or flow algorithm) to be used as one step of a decomposed application• connect yo...

Improve constraint priority attachment in OPL

Actually we have to use OPL script to attach a relaxation priority to a constraint. It will be easier to attach this priority at the creation of the constraint. Reason is that a constraint tupleset can easily include a priority field: tuple rvCons...
