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.

Bursting reports with email notification

Would like the ability to burst PAW reports as PDF.
Would like the ability to burst PAX reports as Excel Slice, Excel Snap-shot or PDF.
eg. TM1 Perspectives Print Report feature
With added email notifications and ability to email burst reports by reading the emails from a PA cube. Eg. burst 100 Cost Centre reports as PDF and email them to Cost Centre owners, which are defined by an Attribute with their email address held in the Cost Centre dimension or could be held by a PA cube.
Reports can either be emailed directly or written to a shared folder for users to access.

    Highly recommend QueBIT's FREE Print Reports tool as a replacement for Perspective's Print Reports functionality. ReportWORQ from QueBIT has extensive functionality for Email, SharePoint and Slack distribution.

    This functionality in Planning Analytics for Excel is key to moving clients to the new interface without it; they will not move.

    I would recommend starting with first replacing the functionality that existed in Perspectives, then moving forward with everything that this person laid out.
