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.

Problems assign components

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

we have installed ILMT 9.2.4 running with Software Catalog (Version: 2016-10-12).

The software scan has discovered the following software products and components:
- IBM InfoSphere Information Server Enterprise Edition for Non Production 11.5
- IBM InfoSphere DataStage Server for Non-Production Environments 11.5

Since IBM InfoSphere DataStage Server for Non-Production Environments is a component of IBM InfoSphere Information Server Enterprise Edition for Non Production, we want to assign this component to the parent product. When we try to do this in the Software Classification part of the ILMT application using "Reassign instances to another product", we cannot select "IBM InfoSphere Information Server Enterprise Edition for Non Production", because this relation seems not to be included in the actual Software Catalog (Version: 2016-10-12).

Also i can not assign the component BI Server Non-Prod 10.2 to the product IBM Cognos Analytic Server for Non- Production Environment.

So please add this relations to the Software catalog, otherwise InfoSphere DataStage will be listed in the PVU Subcapacity report as an own product, which isn't correct.

Thank you in advance.

Yours, Erich Lerch
