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.

Having mode T or O dynamic in APIs through CXTransferSubmit in CX Unix (linux) for Societe Generale

Due to a concentration project at Societe Generale where all transfers are going to be concentrated in a Central Hub (SFG + CX) we faced an issue regarding the mixed of partners defined in mode T and Partners in mode O. In order to not multiply the number of Connect Express monitors in the Central Hub, we ask for an enhancement in CX, to have the Mode T and O dynamic in the transfer request through the API (using the CXTransferSubmit adapter in SFG).

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

This will allow to not multiply the number of Connect Express Monitor in the Central Hub, to simplify the management, as we have an other constraint, one monitor dedicated to PeSIT protocol, and one other for the PeSITSSL protocol. In the production environment, due to a high availability configuration, we have already to deploy 8 CX monitors (without the enhancement in CX we may have to deploy 16 CX monitors).

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we are in agreement that it would be a valuable enhancement.  We have accepted this request and will look to start working on the enhancement soon.
