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.

Controller Web support for non-stable networks

In this age of the pandemic, more people are working from home, and are thus connected via networks that are not 100% stable.

In Controller Web you tend to get an error message if the websock communication is broken, and then you will have to reload the page to get it running again.

Even in corporate networks (inside an Office) the network should not be considered 100% stable, f.x. if you as a user moves through different WiFi-zones you might have a glitch in connectivity, causing Controller Web to produce an error like in the following TN:

There are other scenarios that would directly benefit from this, like using reverse proxies (for security reasons, yes even within internal Corporate networks).
