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.

Request to change Deferment (Batching) process

At the moment on InFlight the deferment process keeps the messages unprocessed until the trigger to create the Envelope it is reached.This causes several issues:
-the alerts will be delayed and we cannot have an proactive recovery for an incorrect IDOC.
-the SAP status messages are sent also delayed and defeats the purpose of the SAP status messages a a real time status
-high processing load at the moment of triggering as you will be processing all messages at once instead of as they arrive(in CTE env this causes long processing times and delays in sending the messages)

    The description contradicts the concept of deferred / batch processing. The solution is not to use deferred processing because you can't mix batch and real time. Please work with your Project Executive / Services Lead to determine the best way to configure your flow.
