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):

Add versioning utility to Case Manager

Our team uses IBM Case Manager for our solution - SEB Case. Through the experience working with IBM Case Manager's Case Builder we noted difficulties tracking the changes of solution especially after changes were committed. Therefore there are no possibilities to track down previous changes to possible identify things that have changed that may cause the issues later in the future.
No possibility to go back to any previous version of solution. So we have to redo the changes and import solution again as previously exported solution can't be deployed. We also noticed that older solution doesn't override the newest solution even the change was very slight UI update.
To sustain all the challenges working with solution we store exported solution zip to our GitHub repositories and all the case builder changes we document ourselves which add difficulties and time consuming tasks to our daily work. Overall work with Case Builder and all related tools is challenging and very sensitive that keeps us away of using it more frequently that we would like in order to avoid any possible mistakes.
