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.

IV to publish Inventory record for inventory audit

The OMS published Inventory Audit in OMS DB but after Inventory is moved to IV this capability is missing . The Inventor audit is crucial for an organization to understand the flow and how it affects OMS order life cycle.

How will this idea be used?

While implementing OMS solution , the client would like to know the inventory at OMS side in past. The Sourcing , Scheduling , Release process checks for inventory based on rules and eventually moves order forward. In absence of an audit trail its hard to determine reason for inventory shortage at location(Node). Hence need audit to be logged for inventory . As with Order Audits externalized outside , we need a similar feature to externalize Inventory audits outside IV and OMS.We will use this data to move to  blockchain for audit purpose.

    This needs to be prioritized and Release needs to be locked. Lack of this is constraining Support team to answer basic questions from Ops / Inventory control on why something is getting cancelled, when did the snapshot change etc

    This is a must-have functionality in IV service. We have a client which heavily depend on inventory audit and we are in the process of migrating them to OMoC+IV+Store and lack of inventory audit turning out to be a blocker/show stopper.
