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.
Allow upload of .py files for Jupyter Notebooks into CA
When working with Jupyter notebooks within a CA envrionment there appears to be no way to re-use python code from 1 book to the next as CA restricts the types of file types that can be uploaed. This means for any functions that you would like to reuse you need to paste it from 1 notebook and move it into another. Obviously this is not ideal. We are working against pressure from within the business who have engaged external consultants, where they have made comment about CA tools and would like them to be more "nimble". They are proposing other solutions outside of CA that would sit in solutions such as DATA360, ALTERYX and data analytic workbenches. We are approaching the issue with a cost v benefit approach however its quite likely that they may move to something that can more readily handle these types of requests. We from a BI perspective understand that this will likely create addtional information silos and also spring up other issues in regards to integration and security to name a few. If this addtional requirement can be added this would likely ease the pressure in the short to medium term with the hope that features and functionality will have caught up with other tools.
