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.

JSON Layout Generator

As part of Map Change team we receive requests for JSON map development. JSON maps layout will be differ from typical maps as the expected output is human readable text to store and transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs and array data types.

The process of creating positional layout(DDF) manually for map will huge amount of time.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

I would like to propose the development of a utility which will generate DDF(Data definition file for map) based on the expected JSON output using Positional layout.

    This is truly an idea that I would push for 100% all of the way!

    A very much needed improvement to the sterling integrator mapping software.

    Tremendous time savings and elimination of confusion if an accommodation for JSON files is put into place.

    The world is moving to JSON!!! Let's keep up!

    Thanks,
