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.

    This is a very critical issue related the productivity of RSA user.
    Our customer has built their financial industry solution based on RSA but they have difficulties in handling these issues because their designers and developers complain that the limitation of editing sequence diagram causes decreases of the development productivity and delay of schedule.
    Sequence diagram is very import diagram in their design phase and they have 100+ designers who work with sequence diagram concurrently.
    This enhancement feature is very essential part to improve the productivity for drawing the sequence diagram dramatically.
    The customer is a big influencer in our business and It will impart our IBM business directly.
    This is also registered as a know bug in MDT.Papyrus product in eclipse community.
