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.

TM1 server name as a function in Turbo Integrator


It would be good to have a function that returns the TM1 server name (the model name). If not, we need to store it in a system cube, or worse, hard-code it. For example, in a generic TI process for backups, we want to store the backups in a folder structure containing the name of the TM1 model. Or a zipfile name that contains the timestamp and the model name - to distinguish later on between files/folders. A function like TM1PRIMARYDBNAME ( goes in that direction but it would just the the model a certain TI process in running in. Or a rule in a cube. The workaround would be hardcoding , or putting it in a cube but then when migrating models one should again change that cube cell, or having a process loop through the TM1 server logs - that should not be needed IMO.
