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.

Visual Modeler interface for CPLEX in DSX

In our current DSX offering we enable programmatic access with Python API for CPLEX engine to solve optimization problems. Leveraging this capability requires a user to have deep technical and programming skills. Iterating across scenarios with modified constraints or objectives requires modifying code. To open up this capability to extended user base with less technical skills we need to offer guided interfaces to visually build optimization models. Very similar to the support we have for ML models. The current Dumbledore Beta intends to enable only a subset of the optimization problems with its natural language interface. And the dashboard visualization requires editing/coding in Javascript for the dashboards. To enable business users the end-to-end tasks for  Optimization models should be supported with visual, guided interfaces. This will extend reach of DSX to address optimization scenarios as well.
