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

Add Timeout to the Test Suite comparison task

When you have huge / complex unordered collection being used in the Test Suite, after the Decision Runners finishes executing the scenario, the comparison phase might takes a huge amount of time.
As a result, Decision Runner report page gets stuck at 20%, and the server hangs.

As a solution, a timeout, controllable by a Decision Center parameter, should be added to be able to have the comparison phase throw a timeout exception without hanging the whole server.

    Hello,

    Thank you for taking the time to suggest this enhancement to IBM Operational Decision Manager. Your request is now a candidate for a future generally available (GA) release.

    We will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your willingness to serve as a sponsor user as we work to deliver this feature. If you have any additional feedback or thoughts in the meantime, or if there is anything else I can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation.

    Please note: IBM's statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at IBM's sole discretion.

    Sincerely,
    Marie Girard
    Offering manager, IBM Operational Decision Manager
