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.

Workspace Planning Analytics

Automatic backup for PAW assets/ Manage PAW snapshots programatically

Currently, the data tier can be backed up by launching .bat scripts. (to create a zip)

PAW reports are totally managed in the docker content store and we have no programmatic access to the creation of Snapshots.

Snapshots can only be managed through the GUI of the lifecycle management.


In real case scenario:

We had lost a lot of PAW reports because of a human error.

Since the reports were not manually backed up through the lifecycle management and because we were on Cloud (no access on PAW content store and multi-tenant platform), the support cannot restore the lost assets.

    This should be on the roadmap as it is a major risk, alongside the LCM between environments - not helpful landing in Personal folders then Save as all books one by one

    The Planning Analytic team acknowledges the requirement for automation in Planning Analytics Workspace. While this is not a part of our 2021 roadmap we will revisit enhancements specific to automation at a later date. Updates status to future consideration.
