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.

Render Cognos maps in PDF report format

Currently (CA 11.0.7), maps included as a visualization in a report can only be rendered when report is run in HTML format. If the report is run in any other format (i.e. PDF, Excel, CSV..) the maps will never be rendered (never displayed)

Please make maps available in PDF format as well.

    We've just found out that all 11.1 visualizations are not displayed in PDF or Excel. This should get absolute priority over any other changes.. Most of our clients have chosen to move their reports to the new 11.1 visualizations, only to be by accident find out all their PDF and Excel reports are broken.
