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.

IDOC should allow developers to choose in which language the optimization model is written without losing functionalities

IDOC should allow developers to choose in which language the optimization model is written without losing functionalities. Today, if I write a JAVA optimization-model, I am losing the studio expression display available in OPL. There should be a way to display objectives even with a JAVA based model. In the future, if Python is available as a way to write models, the demand is the same.

    • there is no difference between languages to express models

    • the difference is between OPL and the rest, becaue OPL has n IDE while Java, C++, C#, C, Python have no IDE included for model building activities

    • user is free to choose an IDE (Eclipse, pycharm, MSVS, etc), we can not embed such IDEs
