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.

Ability to refresh prompts of an embedded report if dashboard filter(s) change / common prompting model

Our dashboards created for IBM sales leadership often have both native dashboard views and embedded/iframe'ed reports when it is needed for better data visualization. Embedded report prompts are hard-coded in a URL pointing to a report. If a user changes filters in a dashboard, reports do not refresh. An ask is to develop a solution to either modify report URL based on some script and/or introduce some common prompting model that a change in dashboard filters would trigger a change in embedded report(s) prompts and consequently their refresh. This solution will minimize time and manpower required to set up a dashboard for a particular persona, allow scalability and will improve user experience when all parts of a dashboard refresh with a single change in dashboard filters. End users do not always have skills and time to modify all embedded reports themselves, nor our unit (EPM and Enterprise Operations) have resources to spend material time on dashboard maintenance.

    This is part of our overall strategy to improve filtering and prompting across the product. We plan to introduce the first improvements in this area later this year and building on top of that.

    We are trying to be consistent with the strategy to live "on the platform" links that break constantly are a headache and a big deterrant to achieve this. A more "stable" approach is key to enable our teams to adopt all these new reports we are building in EPM for our Sales Leaders to use during reviews.
