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.

Process Summary - Systems and Participants

The Process Summary screen is helpful and as another idea suggested it might be useful to split this into Process overview and Activity Detail for better clarity.

One significant element that appears to be missing from the Process Summary view is the list of Systems included in the Process and List of Participants. These being summarised would make this much greater, especially for those with Viewer access only.

    @Sudheer Please see screenshot attached with my thoughts, so two new roll up categories for 'Systems' and 'Participants' they should just summarise a list of the systems and the names of the Swimlanes/Participant names used in that Blueprint.

    Also, all sections on this screen are rolled up from the activities in the Blueprint, with the exception of Description which is from the process as a whole. So maybe that Description section should be at the very top of this screen under the process name and the rest of the sections follow as they relate to the activities and detail entered.

    Does this help?

    Hi Simon,

    Appreciate if you can provide more information on how you would like to see this on the screen. Could you share some screenshots for better understanding
