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.

IDAA Externalized Password Management for Management Console

Externalized Password Management for Management Console

Problem Statement:

  • IDAA admin console does not comply with current audit requirements

  • The Admin console is administered using an admin account with a non-expiring password that is not vaulted

  • Admin console provides the ability to upgrade, shutdown and recycle IDAA LPARs (even deleting LOB data!)

  • Admin console IP address/port is open to JPMC internal network; anyone with these credentials can log in

  • Four IDAA production clusters went live on March 20; an outage will cause significant business impacts
