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.

Backup PAW books

One of our highly valued customers, Aer Lingus, have a planning analytics in the cloud solution about to go live with phase 1 of the solution. This is a very large project with at least 45 users.

On PAW, there are nearly 60 books currently. This figure will increase. A lot of these books are currently been used by the customer to view & input data.

If these books were suddenly lost and couldn't be recovered, the impact to the customer and us would be detrimental.

We are at a critical time in delivering this project and need a solution that would back these books up on a regular basis.

    Marked as will not implement. LCM can be used to both migrate and backup/export Workspace books. IBM is looking at enhancing capabilities of LCM to better support backups (e.g larger snapshots and exports).

    I've voted for this, begrudgingly.  The fact that PAW content is not considered as part of the content for the DR of a SaaS solution is a significant hole in the operating model for the PA SaaS.  The fact that we are needing to raise a RFE to get IBM to look at it is very concerning.
