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.

Waterfall charts in PAW based on Element Weight

The recently added waterfall chart is a great addition to PAW. However, the values (increase/decrease) are based on the values associated with an element, rather than the element weight. We often store both revenue and expenses in TM1 as positive values and use element weights to subtract expenses. This makes a Net Income waterfall incorrectly display expenses as an increase.

    This is great idea. We could actually base the change direction on the weight sign (positive/negative) and not on the weight itself as there might be consolidations with weights less than 1 (e.g., 0.6, 0.75, etc).

    Or we could make it even more flexible by setting up a factor of 1/-1 to be applied to the bars so that the same chart could be flipped over, e.g. for different reporting requirements.
