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.

Improved Program Reporting from PEM

It's very difficult to know the status of our program even at the most basic level.

I'm looking for some basic numbers such as:

    • Number off Invites
    • How many have started?
    • How many have done nothing?
    • How many are totally complete with the process?
    • What percentage of the process is complete, in ranges of invites

In addition to the basic numbers it would be helpful to have some aging numbers such as:

    • Length of time suppliers have done nothing at all in ranges of days
    • Length of time those that had started the process, have stopped and done nothing in ranges of days
    • Of those that completed what was the average time it took from invite to complete in days
    • Of those that completed what was the average time it took from start of process to complete in days

How will this idea be used?

To track overall progress of the migration program and to keep leadership informed.

    I will reach out to you to set up a call to discuss current APIs available where the data can be extracted and if you have an existing reporting tool as a corporate dashboard that we may be able to provide some guidance on how it can be integrated.
