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 for an Administrator to Release an Item where it is currently Reserved by another user.

In a retail environment and focused on Merchandising, we have multiple buying teams with the merchandising co-ordinator factored into the team. The Merchandise Co-ordinator is responsible for inducting and maintaining Product data within the business. In MDM CE (IBM PIM V12) you generally work on the concept of RESERVING the product you are updating. The issue here is if a Merchandise Co-ordinator leaves a product reserved under their account but is not available due to sick, annual or long service leave for example to complete the enrichment or release the product so that another Merchandise Co-ordinator can apply the enrichment on their behalf. We require the ability for the Admin Role in PIM V12 to release a product from a user where the product is currently reserved for update.
