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

Comment Notification

Comments are visible to an editor for one time only, if the editor views a comment that requires action that they need to come back to at another point, they will have to search through all steps to find the comment again. When editing process maps multiple contributor and editors can comment and comments can become lost. the proposal is for comments to show on steps using the numbers that are already in place, but for them to stay on the steps until deleted. Currently once you have viewed the numbers disappear. A second idea would be that when a license holder comments on a process map or step, an email notification could be sent to a specific inbox that is managed by the team that manages blueworks within the business so that the community page doesnt need to be reviewed on a daily basis

    Hi Emily,

    Thanks for the request. We have an upcoming release in which the comments feature is getting enhanced.Distinct indicators would be available to make presence of comments easily identifiable.

    However, email notifications are not part of it.

    Thanks,

    The Blueworks Live Team.
