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.

Connect:Direct API Independent From C:D Server

We are attempting to use Control Center to manage our instances of C:D and Control Center connects via the C:D API. Some of C:D instances sit in different datacenters behind a load balancer in an active/inactive state.
We would like to be able to push the same changes out to all instances of that C:D environment not only the active side. To do this we need to be able to run the C:D API interface independently from the C:D server.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM and for your patience as we reviewed it.  I have discussed this at length with my team and we believe that your request to offer API support independently from C:D would cause negative technical implications that would be detrimental to the broader market.  Because of that I must unfortunately reject this request.  Please don't hesitate to use this tool should you encounter future enhancement ideas however.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
