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.

Role based comments field for governance assets

Currently any user can add comments to a governance asset via the right hand side information pop-out. This is useful but could lead to a lot of noise if everyone is leaving comments.

    Hi Kevin - since I haven't heard from you, I'm going to close this idea; however, you have my contact information. We can discuss this over email.

    Hi Kevin,

    Can you share more about the pain points behind this? Our team purposefully allowed all users with view access to comment because, similar to the ratings and reviews on catalog assets, it's important that people can ask questions even if they're not involved in authoring an artifact. What would make governance artifacts different? If not different, what is the fear our customers have around opening up comments to everybody? When using tools like Box and even Aha itself, it's a best practice to let anybody with view access comment. Our philosophy is for WKC to be created with a similar user experience. Where does that philosophy err?
