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.

Writing data to DV table on Cloud Pak for Data

In CP4D 2.5, we cannot export data to DV table from Modeler flow and Notebook.

Please add features that can do that.

In our customer's organization, we have to have the data-scientist-role users use only limited data, and are planning to use Data Virtualization to accomplish that.

In an Analytics Project, some data scientists only use specific database tables for monthly task (e.g. running model and creating monthly predicted output to pre-defined table). We hope to create DV tables for that exporting data.

    Client use case: CP4D operation team in customer is planning to permit users in some divisions only to use DV tables. Because DV can hide DB access information from users. The users use DV tables registered as connected data asset in analytics project in Notebook and Modeler flow. They use these DV tables for reading data and writing back. In Modeler flow, user should be able to export data to these data assets of DV tables.

    Client name: Kyocera

    This is in context of SPSS Modeler (aka Modeler flow) in Cloud Pak for Data.

    Please share the client use case and based on How it should work desc this is using SPSS Modeler / Notebook have export capability to DV to create objects.
    Please share some formats. Share Client name(s).This is in context of SPSS Modeler within CPD or different? I see the heard chage to " Export from Modeler to create DV object rather than write back"
