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.

Dashboard for the Inflight Protocol relationships

Using Inflight reports we can fetch numerous types of customer and trading partner volumes based on the data. However, we don't have any report or Analytical Dashboard for checking the volumes and health of the Relationship setups and Protocol pods.

How will this idea be used?

If a dashboard is being made available in Inflight or elsewhere IBM PE's, CSM's, Implementer's & Support can visit these and crosscheck the numbers and take decisions on load balancing.

Note: If possible the communicaiton related errors counts are captured that will be even better. {Ex: Exceed Throttling limit, etc }

Note: Also if notifications can be triggered to a DL that would be awesome.

    We are wondering if you could provide some additional use cases for this request? I see some potential with what we are doing with our InFlight APIs to help gather this info and in one of your notes, I saw referenceto a "DL"- is this referring to a data lake? If so, then I do think thst the InFlight APIs may be a viable approach.

    With regards to things like load balancing, I'm not sure how appropriate that may be as our Ops group is continually montoring activities like that with various processes.

    Thanks and regaeds,
