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.

Data traffic encryption

When kerberos authentication is enabled there is no way to have data traffic encrypted. Despite the fact that kerberos has that functionality IBM isn't taking advantage of it. Data traffic encryption is a security standard for years so this should...

Logs Collection for Support

Having an easy way to collect logs on the Concerto for troubleshooting without logging on to the pods would be beneficial. Maybe having some basic options on webconsole would help.

Granularity for backup

Ideal example of it is 'staging database', which may not be worth backing up. Backing up unnecessary databases is a toll on resources (Network bandwidth, CPU, storage). Having choice of which databases user can backup and at what time may help our...

Replace NZPLSQL wrappers for INZA ML related procedures by Python (or others)

ML (related) routines are called using NZPLSQL procedures. The associated overhead is relatively large. Replacing them by Python (or others) would provide more throughput running small (tactical) scorings.
