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.

What is your industry? Aerospace & Defense
How will this idea be used?

TLS v1.3 was recently released, and we would like to see it added to B2Bi/SFG as an available security option for all platforms that support it.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. Your request is now a candidate for a future generally available (GA) release as TLS 1.3 is now available in IBM Java.

    We will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your willingness to serve as a sponsor user as we work to deliver this feature. If you have any additional feedback or thoughts in the meantime, or if there is anything else I can do, please do not hesitate to reply to this message to continue the conversation.

    Please note: IBM's statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at IBM's sole discretion.
