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.

Run workbench without Admin access

IBM Services team came over last year, and told RBC developer needs Admin access on their laptop, to customize MDM behavior.

It's RBC policy not granting individual Admin access on his laptop. We come up with workaround. IBM consultant developed MDM in remote Windows VM server with Admin access.

However, access VM server brings inconvenience.

1. Other people including Support team have access and could change settings in VM.

2. Windows VM server is in DEV domain, and can't access DevOps tools nor even Internet.

3. Developer can't use multiple monitors.


Release restrictions so that install software (i.e. DB2, WebSphere, RAD, Workbench) with Admin access. But after installation done, allows non Admin access user to run workbench.

    Alex - thank you for your submission. Let me see what we have done in this situation and I will update this enhancement accordingly.

    Can you give me an indication of priority (High, Medium, Low) this is for the bank?
