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.

Order Optimizer Dashboard enhancements to 'stores resource pool' map

Enhance the 'stores resource pool' map in the Order Optimizer Dashboard to provide better visibility to metrics.
1. Adjust the refresh behavior so the map pop-ups stay open through refresh of the screen (so they stay open long enough to read)
2. Allow the size of the map to be adjusted or opened in a separate window to allow better viewing / zooming
3. Provide a better sized (e.g. wider and taller) Sourcing Statistics pop-up box when clicking on an individual node; currently it requires scrolling to see metrics
4. Along with #3, revise the metrics in the pop-up to remove (or put at the bottom of the list) 'Run Date', add Node Number, add today's processing plan, and add 'backlog days'
5. Provide more advanced color coding options in the map (e.g. red/yellow/green based on relative backlog days, % capacity consumed for today, node pick performance, etc.) to allow nodes to be compared or ranked vs. each other. Ideally allow the color coding to be driven based on a user-selected metric from a predefined list. Add these available metrics into the node pop-up window if not already present.
6. Along with #5, provide a key defining the relative color coding and valid ranges for that color for that metric (e.g. red if backlog >xx and/or in top xx% of nodes)
