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.

Selective suppress zero function based on a specific table attribute

The user should be able to select a specific table attribute to be considered in zero suppression. Today the zero rows are suppressed only if all the values of the row are equal to zero. Tomorrow we'd like to allow the user to select a specific table attribute that triggers the row suppression: if the value of this attribute is zero, regardless the value of other attributes in the same row, the system hides the row.

As shown in attached picture, the user should be allowed to suppress the FINANCE row by setting as suppress zero parameter the attribute of the second column (Headcount column, highlighted in red).

    This idea may be considered for the Planning Analytics Workspace cube viewer. However, this is not zero suppression. It's already possible to use the MDX Filter function to filter members in a hierarchy based on cube values. It's very common to manually implement set MDX with the Filter function in Planning Analytics solutions.

    We can plan feature work in the Workspace cube viewer that will make it easier to build these sort of data filtered views.
