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.

Why we cant replace the browser tab label "Welcome to Platform Management Console" with something more meaningful?

The very same request was raised long time ago between 2009 and 2010 when I was working for JPMorgan. The symphony web console always show "Welcome to IBM Platform Management Console" labelled in the tab of the browser. which is meaningless to someone who has management consoles of so many clusters openned.

I recall that Li Ji from support team at that time refuse to admit that having a cluster name shown in the tab label would help (just like the room number on the door of a hotel suit) .

Now it is finally implemented "partially".

The reason why I call it "partially" is that when the management console logs out automatically, the browser tab label comes back to "Welcome to IBM Platform Management Console" again... facing so many of such bogus tabs -- just like one would ask "where is my hotel room" when the room number disappeared from the door...

I am sure that there will be argument on this request again (due to it is regarding user-friendliness, usability, "cosmetic", nothing significant).

Any way, the user-friendliness is very important to me. I can spend time argue with whoever wants to challenge this idea.
