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.

    Changed status to future consideration. Better integration between Planning Analytics and CPLEX is currently targeted for Cloud Pak for Data. It's unlikely that we will ever provide direct integration (out of the box) in Planning Analytics Local 2.0.

    I've set this enhancement to future consideration as we are probably more than a year before before we have a version of TM1 database that is fully integrated into Cloud Pak for Data.

    Also there should not be any license requirement to provide the Optimisation via CPLEX in the Planning Analytics. Or should be bundled within the package

    The PA can be linked via REST, we need the CPLEX to be accessed over REST too
