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.

    This is not something that we will enable through Cognos Command Center. IBM may consider using a self service feature through Planning Analytics Administration to schedule a restart of the TM1 database services. No ETA. Will remain open as future consideration.

    Stuart it would be beneficial to not just restart but stop and start at specific times. Cognos Command Center has lost the ability to stop and start a service on the PA cloud because IBM is not willing to grant ADMIN access to the tm1_automation user. Also IBM can only restart not start and stop a specific times with windows scheduler. We need to be able to stop a service , zip existing data files, copy new data files from PROD, and start the service again. thanks
