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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Implement piecewise linear features in Matlab API.
As for all the other APIs, it would be great to add to be able to describe PWLs with the new features introduced from 12.7.0, also in Matlab. The procedure to write several PWLs can become quite cumbersome for a large amount of constraints.
Ability to solve Python/docplex model in CPLEX Enterprise Server
This request is actually for CPLEX Enterprise Server, not CPLEX Optimization Studio, but CES was not an option in the list of products. Currently CES is only able to solve models implemented in OPL. We would like to be able to submit and solve app...
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...
Currently (including the CPLEX 12.9 beta), the output from the populate method lists the number of solutions currently in the pool and the number of solutions "replaced". Use of the term "replaced" signals to the user that changes were made to the...
Extend the CPLEX-API to let reformulate a problem by CPLEX, notably a problem - which could be solved efficiently by a DW-decomposition. It should be reformulated by CPLEX to a problem (its dual) which could be solved by CPLEX's benders algorithm....
CPLEX: Make adding mulitple objectives consistent with adding one objective
In the Java API for CPLEX (presumably similar in other APIs), it is possible to create an objective and add it to a model in one function call, using overloads of IloCplexModeler.addMinimize() and .addMaximize() that take an IloNumExpr argument. D...
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 ...
