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

    There are a couple things that the Snapshot History view was being used for that didn't make it over into WebPD.

    1. the ability to switch between named snapshots without having to go back to the PC console was nice.
    This saves the user a few clicks and page loads to switch between an old snapshot and a new one.

    2. The ability to view revision history(unnamed snapshots) for the process app or toolkit no longer exists. There isn't any feature in WebPD that would cover the same use case.

    This was very helpful if you made a mistake and wanted to roll back to an older version of the object. If you are a development team that only creates snapshots every week or two then you could lose several days of work if you need to rollback an object to a named snapshot. The revision history allowed you to create a snapshot for any unnamed snapshot in the past. So for this scenario you could go back to the exact time of the bad revision and create a snapshot of the code just before that. Then you could revert objects or create a new track from that snapshot.

    It also allowed you to find out when a bad code change was introduced and see who made the change.
