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 Web UI

The existing Connect:Direct Browser interface is very dated. A new one has been in development which I had an opportunity to review last year. The new web UI would be a significant enhancement for improved usability for the product. We recently received a request from one customer - Credit Suisse, primarily using Connect:Direct zOS - who indicated that the existing UIs are very difficult to use and, in some cases, just don't work for them. The new UI should be completed and released.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement request.  I'm pleased to announced that we releases v6.0 on 12/7/18 which includes our new Web Console.  This is a web interface that works across Windows, UNIX, and Linux which has made great strides in our user experience.  Please visit our Passport Advantage website to download and start using this new enhancement.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
