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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

RTAS / RTW should have "intelligent " queuing system to handle testing triggers from multiple "Jenkins" or CI/CD server

customer have 20 to 30 Jenkins pipelines, they are currently missing the WoW factor from testing product in hadling it with in the current license model.
Their expectations , is
1. RTW / RTAS executions should be used 24/7 . running round the clock as soon as one test completed from one CI/CD peipeline
2. Max use of the existing licenses, buy only when there is a capacity overflow

Idea priority High
Use Case
In the below diagram the BP is expecting the " Intelligent Queuing" feature "Q1, Q2, Q3 & Q4" where RTAS /RTW will pick up the triggers and when the first request is been full filled, it automatically picks up the second testing request. In this way their customers can use Rational license 24/7 across multiple pipelines and get Max benefits out of the automation tool. This can also help them to buy only execution type licenses ( currently we do not have one)

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
