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.

Ability to Split Documents At Ingest Time

It would be useful to be able to provide Discovery logic that would allow it to split one ingested document into multiple indexed documents.  For example, make every paragraph or page a single Discovery document.

    Along with splitting the document, there is also a need to have HTML version of the text in another field (can be made optional). When we split using Document Conversion as answer units, everything becomes plain text. So even if there is a table or list, it all becomes mixed up.

    Idea is to having a "html" field along with "text" field in the json, just like it is having when we upload html file.
