This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product.

If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
B2B Advanced Communications will be able to provide the AS4 support to your existing deployment.
If you are connecting from B2BI to your clients via the IBM VAN today, your requested use case should already be supported by Supply Chain Busuiness Network as part of the PEPPOL offering.
Today, PEPPOL uses AS2 as the transport mechanism between the respective Service Providers supporting the Buyer + Seller. From mid 2019 the PEPPOL network is planning to begin migration to AS4, however Germany is looking to deploy AS4-based trade sooner, before the end of 2018. Australia + NZ are looking at something similar.
IBM already supports SCBN Essentials / VAN / Managed Services <--> PEPPOL today, so in the worst case, that you dont have an IBM VAN or Managed Service connection, possibly thats all you need.
I'm happy to advise more.
Ger Clancy, PEPPOL + eInvoicing Offering Manager
