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.

Remove restriction of 50 segments in document splitting feature of Discovery Service

Document splitting feature is very useful but currently it restricts to only 50 segments. We are dealing with huge documents so this restriction does not allow us to use this feature.

    Drew/Deepak - can you please create a new Idea for "splitting on paragraphs" if that is the requirement?  That's a slightly different feature then splitting on section.

    Per Deepak's comments on, our use cases require splits of up to 15000 segments in order to get to a document worth returning as an answer. These are very long PDF and Word documents - happy to provide examples.

    This limit has been increased to 250, and may be able to increase further - let us know if 250 is still not enough
