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.

Dashboard - Combination Chart with More Options

The most used chart type on Cognos reports is the combination chart where multiple columns and lines are sharing the same axis. Currently Dashboard only supports one column and one line on different axis and different scale and this really prevents wide spread use of Dashboards.

    Dashboard - Combination Chart in latest Visualizations 11.1.0


    End user developed a dashboard using Microsoft excel, now I am converting it into Cognos. There is a clustered column chart with line on it, to compare the multiple trend matrix’s and percentages. Currently I don’t see this type of graph in Cognos 11.1.0 visualizations. Can you please make it as high priority to add this visualization in the future releases.

    Congnos dashboards are almost useless without this kind of visualization. This should be the first type you included. I can't understand why you didn't!? Now our organization has a big issue with the new cognos solution, even before we've launched it. Please make 230+ users happy and prioritize this asap!
