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.

Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit WDS-I-72 Ability re-process documents without re-ingestion.

A function to re-index (or re-enrich) collections in the environment. Merged

In case of applying WKS's custom model (or using custom tokenization function available only in Japanese language), there are the following issues.

In IBM Disocovery specifications, we can not re-index documents that have been submitted to existing collections, so in order to update WKS's model (or tokenized dictionary) and use it for Discovery's collection, It takes much time and effort because we need to do tasks.

1. Create a new collection
2-1. Set custom model to configuration
(Or set custom tokenized dictionary with API)
3. Populated input document into new collection just like existing collection

We are developing and selling solutions using IBM Discovery as With Watson Premier Member. In order to make this work more efficient, we are considering functionalization to solutions, but we would like to wait for implementation if there is a productization plan.
