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.

Administrators can limit resource usage on a per project or per user basis

In CP4D 2.5, any user can create data transfer projects and analytics projects, and there is no limitation about creating projects.

In addition, there is no way to limit usage of resources per project or user. ("resource" means disk space, memory, cpu core, number of objects, etc)

This might cause CP4D system's slowing down and going down suddenly. It is very critical issue for any system.

We strongly hope that administrators can limit resource usage on a per project or per user basis.

(Added on March 9, 2020)

If this feature was not provided, the following adverse effects will occur:

  • Users can create lots of objects (i.e. Data Refinery flows, Modeler flows, Notebooks, Data Assets) in their project

  • These objects can consume resources (i.e. disk spaces, cpu, and memory) in each execution.

  • Users can also run these objects anytime.

  • As a result of the above, the CP4D system may slow down or suddenly go down.

  • This issue will cause a monetary injury on CP4D user company.
