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.

Enable one Git Repository to be integrated with multiple CP4D Projects

There is currently the following limitation on Git Integration into Analytics Projects:

  • Each project must have its own Git repository. No two projects can use the same Git repository. This is especially relevant when working in projects with JupyterLab and RStudio. You can’t create a project to work with JupyterLab and associate your new project with the Git repository that you used in another project with JupyterLab.

However, we have a client who uses a single Git repository to store code for multiple use cases, thus would like to be able to access code stored in a single Git repository within multiple Analytics Projects.

    Hi Demond - Thank you for your idea. This idea unfortunately breaks some architecture principles built in Watson Studio and Cloud Pak for Data. Current research suggests that it would cause conflicts within Cloud Pak for Data projects. Can you comment on the problems you are trying to solve here? Perhaps we can consider another approach.
