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.

Integration between WKC and Cognos

The more customers work on the idea of the "Ladder to AI", the more integration between all steps is needed. When defining Metadata and Governance in WKC, using the assets in Watson Studio, DataStage and other components, Cognos should be taken into account as well! When business users work on their Dashboards and Reports, they should have direct access via built in functionality to access the metadata or lineage that makes up the asset they are actually querying. I know this was possible with standalone Cognos and IGC, with some manual work. At first, this should be possible again: WKC providing an API which can be used to query the metadata from other tools like Cognos. But for longer term, this should be OOTB functionality

    Hi Marc, thank you for submitting the enhancement request. It is on our 2H 2022 roadmap to support metadata and lineage import of Cognos assets.
