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 Order Optimizer Dashboard user self-help materials

Enhance / replace the current user self-help materials for the Order Optimizer Dashboard.

1. Revise / replace the current pop-up descriptions to contain a shorter text description in larger font. Allow the windows to stay open as the Dashboard refreshes (currently open pop-ups close every few seconds upon Dashboard refresh making them difficult to read).

2. Create more detailed Knowledge Center user documentation describing the Dashboard metrics. This should include but not necessarily be limited to:
a. default inclusion / exclusion rules (e.g. are only optimized order lines included, or are ALL network order lines included; are re-sourced orders included)
b. calculation examples (e.g. sample data shown to illustrate the calculation)
c. data timing considerations (e.g. how the metric is refreshed; is timing aligned with the rest of the Dashboard or delayed)
d. any other rules or requirements applicable to a metric (e.g. Client feed dependencies; situations where a given metric cannot display)
e. descriptions for configuration choices applicable to a metric (e.g. if the Dashboard has Client or user specific display settings)
f. suggested actions for common scenarios where a user may wish to make configuration changes to influence (improve) results from a given metric
