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.
In Cognos Analytics we can create a Data Source and in that Data Source define multiple connections. Then if a report is developed using that Data Source, at report runtime we will be prompted to choose which connection to use.
Similar functionality with Data Sets and Data Modules would be great. For example, we'd like to create two data sets with identical structure, but different data elements, such as Customers from North America and Customers from South America. Then create a Data Module of these two data sets. Then, if a report is created using this data module there would be a prompt to select which data set to use.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
