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.

Expanding and collapsing a consolidated member in the Pafe Cube Viewer / Set Editor / Exploration view should always display all the children of the member

Please review the attached word doc, I don't seem to be able to post pictures here so it is a bit tough to explain the use case and detail. Currently if I expand a consolidation after previously hiding one of its children then the child remains hi...

Prior to PAW version 73 when previewing the data source using an ODBC datasource the first 10 records where displayed, with the release of PAW 73 you can only preview the first record. This is a big hindrance to testing your SQL when you don't hav...

Column formatting to auto show full contents of cells

Users currently have to set the column width of all columns independently, and this is not saved as part of the view definition, which means it has to be done each time the view is opened.

Combination Chart of Area and Line

Graphs over time which are displayed as area graphs, also require lines included. We are trying to put these together but are unable to find a chart type which can accommodate this in PAW v59. As an example we need to see sales by product over tim...

File Management in PAW

Hide PAW Qickstart

Most of our Users are familiar with the PAW Structure. For that we want them to use only PAW Applications. To ensure that it would be helpful if PAW remembers that a user has hidden the Quickstart on the PAW Startpage
