IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Java pre- and post processor around OPL solve task

Allow for a Java-based pre- and post process run around a DOC OPL Solve task.
OPL is good for defining the optimization model, but not good to do complex pre- and post processing.
One approach is to run Java-based pre and post processing code around an OPL model. Currently, such runs need to be triggered either explicitly by the user, or indirectly through some derived-table logic. It would be a lot cleaner and easier if it is possible to define the pre and post processing as some parameters of the OPL solve task.
Just like regular Java tasks, these Java processes should be able to read and write to the scenario via the DOM.

Keeping an OPL model allows to keep the out-of-the-box Goals and Requirements user interaction (i.e. feasopt)
