IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

Improve Data Module references in reports

Currently, when selecting an item from a data module, the following "link" to that item is made:

[C].[C_<datamodule_name>].[QUERYSUBJECT].[ITEM]


However, the moment the data module is renamed, the report breaks..

To avoid compatibility issues, especially when renaming data modules, we therefore, for each item, manually adapt this to :

[QUERYSUBJECT].[ITEM]


But this is now being annoying – it needs to be done for every item we add from a data module. We understand this works this way because you need compatibility for using multiple data modules (although I strongly advise against this) but it would be a minimum to set in the Options > Report menu a possibility to by default use full indexed names or just the short forms
