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.

Capture CP4D UI Configuration and Deployment Responses - Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

I am working with an IBM team implementing CP4D across a large industrial enterprise for both operational and business use cases. I have advocated using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools like RH Ansible to provide consistency and stability across CP4D deployments - especially sub-Prod to Prod for the same data domain.

The customer is concerned about the complexity of IaC with all of the layers of CP4D software and services. They have stated a preference for the CP4D UI to configure deployments. That, of course, can lead to fat-finger mistakes.

So to compromise, can the customer use the GUI to generate installation and configuration instructions and then capture that code for reuse (like a Db2 installation GUI Response File)? TIA!
