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.

The WDS primarily is focussed on answering a query based on documents ingested. In the education paradigm something additional important is being able to create questions (short-answer, fill-in-the-blanks, true or false or long answer) which that ...
LIBOR replacement in ISDA contracts between Banks and their clients
Most derivatives contracts currently written use ISDA contractual language and most of these also refer to LIBOR as the benchmark interest rates. By 2021 it has been mandated that LIBOR will be replaced, so there is a massive repapering exercise a...
Return the requested number of results when using de-duplicate feature
In speaking to some Discovery News customers, it would be a better user experience to provide the requested number of results to a news query even when deduplication is being used. So today, I send a news query and request 50 results. If the firs...
