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.

Bursting Reports to Email from Cognos on Demand

Bursting reports that are migrated to Cognos on Cloud no longer burst to email recipients. This is an extremely useful future when generating reports for sales teams where the region/area of the report does not change but the person responsible does. Bursting the report allows the associated email address to be updated in the associated database configuration table.

The work around has been to create a new version of the report using a parameter for the state/region and schedule the report to run and send to an email address. This involves greater administration overhead.

    The report bursting capability is one of the few functional gaps between CA on Demand and CA Hosted - For small businesses who are too small for CA Hosted, there does not seem to be a viable option for getting this capability. Adding this capability on CA on Demand would attract further customers to use this service.

    The team has considered the request, and it will not be delivered in the future. If this request receives continued customer interest, this decision may be revisited
