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

Start by posting 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 offering manager 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 a 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Request for enhancement to RAM eclipse client

We are attempting to use the RAM Eclipse Client to move assets from an existing legacy RAM 7522 environment to a new RAM 7547 environment. We have noticed that as part of this effort that the RAM Eclipse client does not automatically move lifecycles as part of the move process. This requires a manual effort to go in and manually create any lifecycles that were a part of the legacy community in order to get the lifecycles to match when moving to the new environment. We are requesting for your consideration that a future version of the RAM eclipse client include the ability to move the lifecycle associated to assets as part of the bulk update of assets.
