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.

Callbacks from CP for .Net languages like C#

Callbacks are available from CP using C++ or Java, but not if using the API from C# (or any .Net language). This seems to be very strange as the internal structures must be there inside the CP libraries etc in order to support the callbacks from C...

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 "...

Allow initialisation using OPL of arrays within tuple sets

In OPL it is not possible to initialise an array which is within a set of tuples either through values or programmatically. An enhancement should be made to OPL to allow this. Consider: {string} Factors = {"a","b","c"}; tuple T_2 { key int i; int ...

sin function in OPL

tuple breakpoint // y=f(x) { float x; float y; } sorted { breakpoint } breakpoints={<i,exp(2*sin(i))> | i in 70..135}; I am trying to code this while because of no sin function in OPL, I am not able to code this on OPL.

OPL shall generate concert model with column API

OPL fails at building very large scale models due to the fact that it uses a "row api" of concert : Variables are created and added then to the range constraints. Unfortunately, such API can become dramatically slow for very large models, and bui...

saving data with a mouse-click instead of writing code through JDBC connector in CSV or other formats

I can currently browse it in the UI/IDE using the various inspectors. It would be nice if I could easily save this data to a file with a mouse click rather than having to write code, or add JDBC connections and rerun the model, etc. Typically what...

In OPL ODBC connection, add a setting for batch size

The prebuilt ODBCConnection allows OPL to access databases using ODBC. One way to optimize database access is to tune the execution batch size. With older versions of OPL that included DBLink, this was the dbUpdateBatchSize parameter.

Human-readable status response

In the new multiobjective optimization support in CPLEX (Java API, but likely true in other APIs), querying status via IloCplex.getMultiObjInfo(IloCplex.MultiObjIntInfo.MultiObjStatus, ...) returns a numeric code (e.g. 107). This is difficult to i...

Add doopl in the CPLEX distribution on Watson Studio

relying on docplex python API got much easier since docplex was included in the CPLEX product. doopl which is a python package that allows to call OPL model from python code can be download from https://pypi.org/project/doopl/ but having doopl in ...

CPO interactive enhancement to write or query solution

CPO interactive misses some very useful command to simply query one solution value for a given variable with its name (allowing wildcards to display more variables) Today, the only way we can query a solution is through display solution command th...
