Digital Business Automation Ideas

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 notifications 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 that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on premises, containers, on cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Automation - incl Business Automation Studio, Business Automation Insights

  • Business Automation Workflow (BAW) - incl BAW, Business Process Manager, Workstream Services, Business Performance Center, Advanced Case Management

关于ODM8105的DC中规则查看功能

1、现象:决策表的行预览:无法进行行预览; 问题:对于规则问题排查带来很大不变。尤其是某个单元格的字符串存在空格、决策表列较多等类似情况,无法快速排查。 建议: 增加决策表行预览功能,提高决策表的可阅读性和可维护性。可参考RTS. 2、现象:DC中日期类维度仅有日期,未精确到时间。如规则的查看、修改时间。 问题:如果遇到规则当天多次修改,无法查看具体修改时间。不便于维护和问题排查。 建议: DC中涉及日期类展示,精确到具体时间。可参考RTS。
