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.

Trigger SupplyChange Event based on change in timestamp in addition to quantity change

Currently, IV triggers supply change event for an item only when there is an update to supply bucket quantity. To make the event updates robust, we need capability to generate the events on the change of timestamps.

    We will need some kind of capability to trigger the supply or demand change events for IV even when there is no qty changes. without this capability, we will have systems out of sync and there is no way to update details from IV unless there is qty update. This is a critical functionality to use IV event

    Hello Raghu. Thanks for providing your feedback and this request for enhancement. Unfortunately, the team does not expect to be able to take up this feature as presently requested. That being said, there are some sync and snapshot features that are expected to be worked on in near term releases that may achieve some of what you were looking for in this request.

    If there are further questions about these features when they are released please feel free to reach out. Thanks again for taking the time to submit this request.
