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 For Enhancement :To filter out maps by names while creating ST/UNH envelopes

While on-boarding partners to our SCBN platform we need to create/modify envelopes in SPE02/Config Centre and deploy maps in them to achieve data translation. For example for an ANSI X12 EDI message we need to create ST envelope and point out the map in it for data translation. Currently the SPE02 interface lists as a drop down all the maps for that particular pod or customer when we try to point to a particular map and in that drop down list we need to locate the only map we need to point to which is tedious task and time consuming. For example client like Ceva where there are a huge number of maps in the drop down. This can be applied to EDIFACT and TRADACOMS EDI envelopes as well when we are trying to point out a map.

Instead of a drop down list if we can have a filter in the ST/UNH envelope where we can search the map with its name directly as it would be already deployed and existing in the pod. With the name we can directly find the map we need to point to and we do not have to go through all the maps to search and identify through the drop down list.

How will this idea be used?

As part of the Watson Customer Engagement Team we are working on on-boarding partners for our clients into SCBN solution .This idea would simply the solution of on-boarding and can also act well if clients are using self-service to create new envelopes and point maps to accommodate translation for their data.
