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.

Integrate Event Studio functionality into C11 Analytics core

Event Studio in v10.2.2 was a very handy toolset that allowed businesses to schedule jobs with much more detail than the regular scheduler. We were able to verify conditions, and create detailed step by step actions to take. Also, the communication towards the end-user (sendouts) was refined, supported HTML content and was highly customizable. That said, the product was flawed and buggy in many ways.

We don't request a straight port to v11. No, instead, we request to consider to take that functionality as a base, and develop in one of the future releases of v11 a way to allow our admins to schedule, with conditional checks, a report view or dashboard view, in Excel, HTML or PDF, and send it to a list of users taken from a data source. Make sure that e-mail content can be formatted in HTML and customized with parameters received from the Data Warehouse.

Such functionality is vital. We understand the push from IBM towards self-service and users running content directly on the platform. But top management will always want to see dashboard overviews and summary reports in their mailbox. Nowhere else.

Thank you
