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 an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Restore ability to set concurrent licensing for all users system-wide
SPSS 28.0 changed the way concurrent licensing works. Every user must explicitly select the concurrent license in the activation wizard the first time SPSS is launched, even if the administrator has already configured concurrent licensing. This is confusing to end users and undesirable in lab and classroom environments.
The suggested workaround of modifying user-specific registry keys to avoid the dialog is unnecessarily complex and will lead to issues when multiple version of SPSS are deployed across campus. We request an install-time or post-install system-wide option to revert to the previous behavior from 27 and before. Specifically, if the administrator has configured concurrent licensing for a workstation, all users should automatically use concurrent licensing and never see the activation wizard. This should be possible without needing to modify every user's registry.
