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.

Add ability to monitor Connect:Direct I5 on any selected port.

Due to CIP mandate, Cigna is disabling all unencrypted ports and we need the ability to select an SSL encrypted port in SCC to monitor I5 Connect:Direct nodes. SCC currently monitors I5 nodes on default ports and current default unencrypted ports pose a security risk to Cigna.

How will this idea be used?

Configure Control Center to monitor I5 Connect:Direct servers on ports of our choosing. Control Center currently provides this feature for all other platforms and is needed for I5.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    We will shortly be reviewing this request internally and get back on the feasibility to implement this in near future. Appreciate your patience.

    Thank You
