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.

Partner invitation should identify the duplicates and warn the sponsor.

PEM should throw an warning saying that the user is already registered or Invitation sent to partner as soon as sponsor clicks on Invite button and the a partner is registered with that Email Id already.

This avoid sending the duplicate invites to partners and sending duplicate invites creating lot of confusions and panic situations to partners.

    This idea is not under consideration because we currently do not tie email addresses to the partner registrations. That is because there are times when an invitation may be sent out to one person at a partner organization where that partner may decide that it should be another person. This allows that other person (the one that should be the partner administrator) to register with their email address.

    We are also considering an enhancement where the sponsor would be able to check to see if the partner is already onboarded into B2Bi/SFG. This would allow the sponsor to not proceed with the onboarding process unless they needed to have the partner update their details.

    Also, with the eventual inclusion of single sign on into PEM, we believe that inviting partners and having those partners go through a separate registration process just for PEM will become less frequent.
