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.

Multiple Business Views - Customer View

A business is considered as a division or department in a corporate divisional relationship. Each business has a parent company. A company is the parent of one or more businesses, and the businesses report to the company.

Some business data is assigned to a business by the parent company, such as trading partner names and system administrator capabilities.

A business view is a means by which a company administrator can control users' access to business data. If a user has access to a particular business view, then they can see data from that business.

In IBM Watson Supply Chain Insights platform provided by IBM, there is no option of choosing different Business Views.

If there is more than one plant/division at customers site and the customer's requirement is to keep the data secure and secret to that plant alone, they would need multiple business views.

How will this idea be used?

As a customer, if I have two divisions/plants in two different locations, I want my data to be managed by the users specific to the location.

For example Plant A data needs to be accessed only by the Plant A users and not Plant B users and similarly vice versa. The customer should be able have multiple business views for all their plants at their end.

As an admin, I can be sure that the data the data is safe and secure and specific to geography and division and I can control the access of the data.
