Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Enable to add custom first names to the underlying language dictionaries
Security organizations would like to analyze reports, in these reports officers often use partial person names (only last names for example). In SPSS Text Analytics there in an extraction option for "Group partial and full person names together", but it only works for the first names listed in the underlying language dictionaries, which are not exposed to the user.
This means that SPSS Text Analytics is not able to extract names (also full and partial) from countries outside the supported languages. The workaround soultion could be to list all the first and last names in a dictionary type, with matching criterion Start or End. Since there are loads of names that's not an option.
The perfect solution would be if we can add tokens to the list of first names that apparently exists inside the language files.
