IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

Post 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 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.

Close notification email for ap issues

Customers are using CP4DS/NPS.

However, this system has many false positive alerts.

The customer has to confirm the alert every time.

If the alert auto-close is emailed, the customer's work is reduced.

How should it work?

>Do you have a proposed solution for this problem.

Please send an email when the issues are closed.

>and what would the measurable benefits of the solution be?

The operation of the customer becomes easy. As a result, customer satisfaction is improved and new business is created.

>what are you doing today to work around the problem?(or what else did you try?)

Now, confirmation with WebConsole and commands is required.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification Currently, there are many false alerts, so the customer is overloaded and dissatisfied. Customers are skeptical of continued use of NPS.

    <Business impact>

    This time, it moved to CP4DS+IPS.

    (Reason for migration: Support for Netezza has expired, so it was necessary to migrate)

    After the system is activated, an alert will be displayed, and some alerts may be ignored, but the administrator visually confirms each time.

    This monitoring requires labor costs.

    (In the system (Netezza) before the migration, the alert was displayed, but the alert so far was not displayed.)

    <Influence of the project>

    From the content described in the business impact, the administrator needs to monitor the email and the management console all day long, and the cost of the administrator costs several million yen per year.

    Customers say it costs too much.

    Therefore, this cost will be reduced by improving the function this time.

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions
