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.

Enhance your automated email on a VAN Failure transmission to us

We sometimes receive emails entitled: "IBM Sterling Information Broker Services (System Notification) - Message Undeliverable".
The email tells us something went wrong sending a message from someone to someone. It lacks any useful information to help us identify what this pertains to.

The email should provide some sort of indication of why the transaction failed and other relevant information.
This email does not provide any useful information.

What partner was it?
Were we sending or were they?
What is the ISA Control Number
What is the ISA Sender ID
What is the ISA Receiver ID.


I've mentioned before that this type of email does not provide any useful information.

FYI, SRXAA001 is Prod Mailslot

How will this idea be used?

Without this enhancement, it is a big waste of time on our end and YOURS, since someone on your side needs to do the research and then get back to us.
