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.

add finctions to support Timezone in ITX

ITX lacks in Timezone based functions. we require functions to support
1) get current time in timezone
2) get current time in UTC
3) covert input timestamp to timezone.

    We should also be able to specify the TZ that the map runs under as a parameter when calling the map.

    Definitely an vote from me and my team on this capability!


    We adapted/developed a UTC timezone function that is pretty good but not perfect.  It only works in EST/EDT (although it can be adapted).  That's the key problem we were trying to solve - we need a fixed time reference that doesn't change with Daylight Savings Time.


    The function is:







    We had discussions on this on the IBM forum many years ago:
