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.

Inventory Visibility Service | Event Publish | Reservation Event

We would need to use the node level reservation event message to create activity for RTAM to consider this reservation for publishing to all consumers of the inventory.

We will use this event to create activity for RTAM to consider this reservation for publishing to all consumers of the inventory.

    All event supports reserved quantity withheld and is triggered by supply/demand/reservation.

    Adding more comments from the customer for this idea - 

    Adidas is not able to go live with the availability change event publish from IV to UBX due to this.  Their main business benefit for adopting IV was to prevent overselling across multiple selling channels - marketplace, retail, and ecommerce. They are implementing IV to get a real time picture of the availability across channels for high velocity and high demand items.

    If IV does not publish an availability change on reservations, then the root problem of overselling that they have is not getting solved using IV.

    Adidas has ecommerce selling channel that is querying IV in real time for correct availability and the remaining channels(marketplace, retail) where the real time availability changes are being published to as a push model.

    hence, it is absolutely required that all channels get intimated on any availability change, whether its from a reservation, or a demand change, or a supply change.

    The requirement is to have an availability change event published for any supply, demand, or reservation change.
