IBM Sterling 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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

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 which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Show more detail, on progress bar, when using IIM to upgrade B2Bi

Upgrading B2Bi v6.0 to v6.1 took almost two hours. For the majority of that time, IIM's progress bar sat at (about) 60%. It would be helpful to see what it's doing or even update the progress bar more frequently.

How will this idea be used?

It lets the installer know that progress is being made versus wondering if the application is "stuck" upgrading.

    Thank you for your participating in the request for enhancement community. While we do agree this would add value we are not able prioritize based on our current priorities. Of note our certified container deployments do offer more insight into the progress, which is significantly faster to deploy. Other options for the IIM based install is grepping the install logs or monitoring CPU usage.
