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.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    I am sorry to inform you that our team has evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time. In part, this is due to the length of time it has taken for us to review your idea, for which we apologize. This has not been good enough and we want to do much better going forward. If you believe that your request is still relevant to your business please submit a new idea using the following developerWorks RFE submission link: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=submitRfe.

    Please feel free to reach out to me if you require any further clarification of any of the items discussed above.

    Many thanks again for your understanding.

    Kind regards,
    Suhas Kashyap

    This does align with the product's current strategic vision, yet the product team can not commit to a specific release at this point.
