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.

Activity monitoring screen enhancements

It would be really helpful if we add below mentioned columns in the activity monitoring home screen.


  1. Activity Status - (Errored / Failed and Success / Completed) : We can't go inside of every activity and check the status of each activity whether it is failed or success . Providing these options in home screen of monitoring page helps the PEM administration.

  2. Task Owner : Should be able to display on whom the current task of activity is pending, whether the current task is pending on Sponsor or Partner. This eliminates the work of going inside of each activity and checking on whom it is waiting on.

  3. Current Task : Displaying the current task to be started of activity , this helps the admin a quick glance on which task the activities are waiting on. This would be really helpful if you have multiple onboardings (assume it in hundreds or thousands). We can't go to each and every activity and check.

    Thanks for the feedback on the monitoring screen. The activity status and the task owner (sponsor or partner) are areas that we will look into to determine how we could make this possible. On the current task suggestion, the PEM monitoring screen currently lists the current task that the activity is currently on. This is found in the second column on the monitoring screen.
