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.

Provide a less database centric view of data sources

The data platform needs to provide a less Database centric view of each supported data source. Currently any user wanting to move data from a source such as Salesforce is required to have a deep understanding of the database structure and associated schema to be able to select all the desired data fields. Providing a somewhat abstracted data object view that enables less technical users to select the data objects they are more familiar with from a data source UI standpoint such as “Cases” or “Accounts” vs having to know all the relational DB tables and fields that end up comprising those objects in the Salesforce UI.

    We will be updating the view of assets in the catalog to help users better understand where the data comes from and what information is in the table. Discovery will also become much easier to implement as a business user.
