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.

Show description in table view(Available Assets list)

Problem statement/pain point:

Table view = Available asset list in main panel, we can see “NAME”, “OWNER”, “TAGS”, “TYPE”, “DATE ADDED” as items in this asset list.

We can not see other information about detail of the assets(such as description) with staying in the main panel.(sure we can see detail and metadata include description in panel for each asset)

User wan t to have information that the asset is reusable for their projects.

In this use case, in order to streamline the determination of reusability, we established rules to write 3 items in description

  1. Overview of the asset
  2. Scenario of reuse
  3. Data volume and refresh cyle (in case of data asset)

As a workaround against user can not see description in main panel, user select and open panels for each assets one by one.

This cause user cannot compare overview and detail information among relevant assets, can not selection reusable asset effectively.

Proposed solution:

Show description in table view(Available Assets list)


Users can view and compare detailed information of candidate assets while staying in the main panel

# of users impacted and how often are they impacted:

For this instance, from several to ten users, and always impacted in now, but this use case is trial, impacted user will be growth in near future.

Also this function will be impact to decision to renew or stop Watson Knowledge Catalog Standard plan which is purchased in now.
