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.

Cognos ability to read from REST API services

One challenge we are facing today is the ability to read data from non-traditional databases such as Marklogic, Nginx, NoSql databases which talk through Rest API for most of their functionality. They not only enable real time reporting requirements but also support fast paced development models which don't quite care about dimensional modeling in their early stages.

With so many data sources adopting rest api interfaces for their service models, this lack of ability in Cognos is severely limiting us in how far we can introduce Cognos into our eco system.

It's good for Cognos to have this generic Rest API based reading capability from these new data sources on their roadmap sooner than later. It is also in our favor to leverage Cognos for these needs with its enterprise grade support rather than having to depend on new vendors.
