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.

Cluster Support and Certification for Connect:Direct Web Service 6.0

CDWS would be an integral part of Connect Direct as technological adaption of APIs increases. And when we want to have an API server, we would look at providing 24/7 services to our businesses. So we want to have CDWS on a clustered model especially on a Windows Failover Cluster..

What is your industry? Insurance
How will this idea be used?

Connect:Direct is a robust product which on clusters gives a 24x7, 365 days unmanned operation to consumers. WebServices is on much demand and hence we will use CDWS on clusters to provide the same level of robustness for our clients as C:D does.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed this request thoroughly with my team and we believe that architecting CDWS to be more highly available would be a valuable enhancement. We will accept this and look to add it to our roadmap moving forward. Thank you for leveraging our RFE tool and please don't hesitate to open new requests for other ideas we should consider.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
