  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.

Include Object Storage in the list of Data Services

I got tripped up recently because I clicked on my list of Data Services / Services and did not see Object Storage there. I ended up opening a separate tab and navigating to Bluemix to create a new container for a Streaming Pipeline project. Of course "Object Storage" is a top-level item in Data Services, but the fact that it was not listed in Services nor in the list of new Services that one could create threw me for a loop.

I would like to Object Storage treated as a peer to other data services whenever possible.

  • Not Under Consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a data engineer, I would like to manage object storage containers / buckets in a manner consistent with my other data repositories.

    Thomas - I am assuming this is going to be tied with the availability of COS in Bluemix end of Sep?

    And we have COS under data services.

    Closing as Object Storage is deprecated.

    We are currently reworking the design for the data services area where OS will be a peer of the other services in the list of the services not a separate area. Good point that it also should show up in the list of new services.
