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.

Automate logon on the cloud

There is currently no way to automate the logon to the cloud in the API for PAx. Therefore, I cannot fully automate the generation and dissemination of Excel reports that use Planning Analytics On-Demand. It has to be a person's daily task to open Excel, Logon to TM1, and run the macro that generates and emails a daily report. This is suboptimal because people might forget to do it, do it at different times, require duplicative permissions, etc. Further, it prevents me from scheduling and fully automating daily reporting.

    We would like the same functionality. Ability to write VBA or python scripts to call the server and login via a service account on the cloud server. Simple process of calling Excel, login into PA, open workbook, refresh workbook, save workbook and log out of PA. This used to be possible with the On-Prem server. It would help us to upscale automation of our internal reporting without a massive overhaul of the files and the way they receive data. Giving a large amount of out of hours time back to the associates.
