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.

Cognos allow other members from PA cube to be used as members and enable multiple widget connections

I would like to be able to use all dimensions from OLAP source as measures in visualizations. Currently I can only compare members that are in measure dimension in KPI visualization. This makes it so that you cant compare Actual vs Budget or any members from other dimensions. This also makes it hard to use visualizations that have multiple slots for measures. The ability to use other dimension than the measure dimension as measure in visualization would need to be accompanied by the ability to use the measure dimension in other places in visualizations. This would allow us to then select in which member measure we would like to see the comparison in. When using Cognos Analytics with Planning Analytics cubes we can't select dimensions that will synchronize. Currently you can disconnect a visualization but you can't achieve the same level of dimensional synchronization as you can in Planning Analytics. Users of Planning Analytics will surely want to have the same functionality in Cognos Analytics.
