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.

Reduce the risk of critical errors when using the PAW dimension editre

Currently when using the PAW dimension editor it is to easy to make a change that will trigger data loss. The two main areas of concern are.

The editor defaults to auto-commit mode, with additional steps required to reserve the dimension so errors can be unwound.

The lack of protection around converting an N level element to a consolidation. With auto-commit on this would trigger the loss of all data against the element and requires recovery from a back-up to resolve.

On the converting N to a C issue there used to be a dialogue that popped up when this action occurred warning the user and asking them if they wished to proceed.

There is a new option, paste as parent, this is right next to the paste as child option. Paste as parent is a new and risky operation and leads to the conversion of the what is the clipboard to a C level. Since it is right next to the Paste as Child option it is very easy to pick the wrong option.

    Planned for future release. We will examine the presentation of data loss warnings as we redesign the hierarchy editor widget.
