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.

Planning Analytics Workspace - Ability Customize Objects Available on "Data Pane"

In Planning Analytics Workspace, we would like the ability to hide objects along the data pane at the left side of the interface. The reason for this would be to prevent undesired actions from end users. For example, we have 2 separate cubes for a particular budget module - an input cube and a reporting cube. Users currently interact with an input template (tm1web sheet) to enter their budget data. There is also a reporting cube (data pulled over via rule) that certain Cognos reports leverage. We would like users to leverage the "self-service" capabilities of PAW to be able to create their own dashboards/content from data views. However, the concern is that users would pull in the input cube to create a dashboard rather than a view from the reporting cube, and potentially enter data at intersections where they shouldn't. By accessing just the template, this eliminates that possibility.
