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.

Add Support for PowerBuilder 2019R3

Our application under test is coded using PowerBuilder 12.5 and there is a wish to upgrade it to PB2019R3, however; support for RFT stops at 12.6.

    We are not using PowerBuilder via the browser – our AUT is locally installed on a thick client which connects to an Oracle database.

    I am following up on the request for additional information. Let us know if this idea is still of interest. Thank You.

    Hi, we would like to understand more about the PowerBuilder 2019R3 usage. I will separately email you for a call to find out if VAC uses browser based PowerBuilder or if RFT's Windows driver support can test the PB 2019 thick client
