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.

Flexibility to Custom Attribute in WKC

资产的自定义属性应支持添加限制条件进行筛选。如术语的自定义属性,最好允许添加到某些术语上,而非全部术语。(Custom attribute for assets is better to support restrictions and filtering. For example, custom attributes for terms should preferably allow adding to some terms rather than all terms.)

Display of Null in Thick client showing as 'empty' in DQEC

When running a data quality rule in thick client and viewing the results, when there are results that have null values, we see NULL in the results view. However, when we view the same results in DQEC, it's just empty fields. I think this is just c...

Add method for deleting/modifying/taking ownership of data governance artifacts

Enhanced statistics, e.g., for entire table dataset

The statisticin WKC refers only to the first 5,000 rows and is therefore useless for evaluating the entire dataset in a table. There should be more selection options, such as statistics on the entire table or special selections (e.g., statistics o...

Hive Connector with a Kerberos authentication

When we use some words at one time in the search bar on the catalog, the search bar should use these in AND condition, not as a one term.
