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.

Enhance drill in Maps for a more intuitive workflow

Use case:
Currently in a map, if you have the same items represented in the region layer and the points layer for example country and city, and you drill into a specific area based on a navigation path that applies to both layers (ex: Country, City, postal code), then it only drills on one layer and zooms out of the map thereby confusing the user as to whether there is something wrong with the product or their data. It would help users to have the drill synchronize across layers if the fields used in those layers is the same. When you drill down on either the region or the point, the map does not appear to zoom into what you drilled down on which is confusing. Only when you drill down on the other layer on the same value does the map return the expected results.
