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.

OP RCM: Ability to copy details from one requirement eval to another

We would like to have the functionality to copy the details recorded in one requirement evaluation into another one.....this would save a significant amount of time for our assessors when assessing requirement evals.

Our assessment approach is as follows:

1) Create compliance theme in library (the theme could be an individual regulation, or a grouping or regulatory topics)

2) Launch the theme deployer to assign the library theme to one or more legal entities...this creates a compliance theme for each legal entity assigned

3) The requirement evals in each legal entity compliance theme are then assessed using workflow functionality

The challenge:

Let's pick a scenario...let's say we want to assess a new regulation (mandate) in China.

The mandate consists of 100 clauses (requirements)

We have four legal entities that we need to assess against.

In many instances a large number of those requirements will be addressed by common controls, common policies, etc. Leaving maybe a smaller amount of requirements that require specific legal entity assessment.

At the moment, we would still have to go through our full workflow process, and we would have to go into each requirement eval. In the scenario, that would need to be done 400 times (4 x 100 requirement evals).

After performing the first legal entity review, it would be great if we could then select the requirement eval content and copy them across to the other three legal entities. Then we can focus only on the delta for the remaining three legal entities.

We have thought of different ways of doing just one requirment eval at the country level (eg China)...however, we have internally determined that this does not meet the business requirement, as we would need to report on each individual legal entity. So we have to demonstrate the different assessments

    Hi John...thanks for the feedback. I would be interested to know how other clients are addressing this challenge. I can only stress from my company's perspective that a "copy feature" is critical...for us, with the current OP RCM functionality, it will be extremely difficult to onboard other users, as existing office tools used for such assessments would be much quicker for them to copy paste details. I hope this feature can be added soon after the current release being developed.

    Many thanks and best regards
