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.

Enhance SPSS Modeler Solution Publisher Guide

User needing clear explanation of using the "User Input Node" on SPSS Modeler Solution Publisher

In SPSS Modeler stream, "User Input Node" does not need any input data file (such as CSV). But in case of pim/par file for execution on Solution Publisher, user need to pre-create specific input data file (named "userInput.dat") for the "User Input Node" for execution of pim/par. Lack of "userInput.dat" encountes execution error.

This requirement of "userInput.dat" is not specified on any public Guidance of SPSS Modeler Solution Publisher, so user cannot understand the meaning of the errror and fix their problem.

My request is, adding clear explaination about using "User Input Data" node in the stream, and "userInput.dat" file format to the SPSS Modeler Solution Publisher Guide.
