This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Just wanted to post a little support for this one the map names have to carry a LOT of detail we have:
A 3-charater tag to identify custom additions to Sterling Map/BP/Etc
The doc version which also carries type and we use the full 008050 style (because we are two major versions away from 010-01-0 or 010010)
Do number 810 (Note X12 vs EDIFACT you trade of version lenth for document number length)
Direction I/O/Z -In/Out/Custom(Mutually defined)
Something to carry the business usage
Something to indicate the internal format
(And all this with separators between each)
50 isn't enough many times to carry this level of uniqueness.
