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.
Many of the component services in the CP4D platform require connectivity to end points and data sources, currently each component service has its own connectors and way of entering credentials for their connectors. This creates a complex environment where:
Users cannot easily develop an e2e workload without entering connector info (credentials to endpoints) multiple times
The way the credentials are stored, managed and guarded differ across services
Users cannot get clear answer to how their passwords and credentials are protected as it differs across services
The common connectivity specification defines the platform standard for connectors which can be used across services.
