IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


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.

Enable OpenPages on CentOS and Ubuntu Linux

We'd like to see support for additional Linux distributions but in particular, CentOS and Ubuntu.

This is useful as it will enable a greater, more cost effective, deployment choices across a broader range of cloud hosting platforms.

    Thank you again for submitting this RFE!

    We do have an active Containerization Strategy where Production workloads are targeted to first be supported in 4Q2020 (with IBM Cloud Pak for Data) and into 2021 (via Red Hat OpenShift).

    In subsequent Client Events (Customer Advisory Board, etc.) we will be further communicating this strategy.

    For this particular request, we are marking as "Will Not Implement" for now but we are looking forward to continuing the discussion with both you and our other Clients...

    Hi, I'd like to request an update for this its been over 6 months without direction. CentOS claims Kernel compatibility to RHEL and is low hanging fruit to support, I know many other IBM products that follow this mantra.

    It would be great to have Alpine Linux also supported, to promote secure and more maintainable application containers.

    From what I have encountered IBM will support CentOS as long as the CentOS version claims kernel compatibility with the supported Redhat versions. Not sure about Ubuntu.
