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.

Allow customization of the Launchpad Web UI

As a customer I have a few different instances of IIS Servers running in Development, Test and Production. We often use the IP or hostname in the URL for Launchpad, but these names are generic and not informative.  Users often get confused as to which environment they are accessing. The idea is to simply customize the launchpad via a simple variable so that the "Welcome to IBM InfoSphere Information Server" to add another custom field - e.g.   "UAT Server 11.5 Project Atlas"  or "DEV Server 11.7 Apple"

    Great Idea. We have different groups which use different modules on the launch pad. Provide authentication to launchpad and depending on your role, you can enable the modules on the launchpad

    Hi, I am not sure but I think that should help you, when you simply change the launchpad.welcome text?

    I have not tested that yet, but maybe that helps you.
