Pinned ideas

PINNED SQL statements in Dashboard Widgets
I think using SQL statements in widgets would be great to leverage the entire potential of the data uploaded to IBM Process Mining. Lots of important and helpful information cannot be displayed today as it's only SQL-like. I don't think that using...

IBM Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD) should be supported with IBM Case Manager (ICM) and Business Automation Workflow (BAW)

This is useful because customer would want to have an option that is different from using FileNet as a document repository. Customers will benefit from this idea by integrating CMOD with BAW to captures and stores documents.
