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.

Governance Workflows by Steward

As a business SME, owner, or steward assigned to a governance artifact, I would like to know when that governance artifact has been created, modified, or deleted. Governance workflows should be configured so that a steward on an artifact is listed in the review/approval flow rather than a group of people by role or a set of people for an entire organization.

In order to distribute the work of approving new governance artifacts (federated model with centralized organization) we need to be able to assign stewards as the assignees for subject areas where they are experts.

100+ users impacted daily by this at our organization.

    This idea is actually something we're implementing in v3.5 of CP4D coming out this year. Users will be able to configure workflows on governance artifacts such that the data steward on that artifact can be assigned as the approver or any other task in workflow. I look forward to hearing feedback once you are able to test it out!
