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.

Requesting a new deployment in UCD 7 requires too many steps

We are upgrading from UCD 6.2 to 7.1. We are getting used to the new interface but there are a couple of changes that we find hinder our ability to use the interface. This bug is for the request for a deployment.

Requesting a deployment now takes one through 5 separate screens instead of the one screen that UCD6 has. It is so much more efficient to have just the one place to fill in everything than to go through 5 steps. Especially since most of the steps are often not needed: verify properties is not needed if there are no properties, schedule deployment isn't needed by us for any manual deployment, and then there is the final verification step which lets you see everything, adding one more step which wasn't needed in UCD 6.2.

We often do multiple manual deployments in a day and going through all of these screens increases the time and frustration needed to do deployments.

I'm not sure why you made this change, but please find a more efficient way to do what you intended.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    I'd also like to see the request process selection on the left. Especially since it's intuitive to want to use the arrow that is on the right for starting the deployment.
