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.

Allow deep linking within Store Engagement Next


Requesting that IBM extend the functionality of Store Engagement v1.0 to allow a logged in user to deep link to an existing page and pass in a parameter.

Example URL request: https://mycompany-prod-1.oms.supply-chain.ibm.com/wsc/store/StartCustomerPickup?order_no=123456

The current Store Engagement mashup does not allow this.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

We have extended our retail business' omnichannel capabilities by adding curbside delivery. When a customer shows up in the parking lot to pick up an order, they trigger a message in a custom app to say they have arrived to pick up order number 123456 in a Honda Civic with license plate ABC-789. We would like the order number relayed into Store Engagement and initiate the Customer Pickup functionality for order number 123456. The requesting URL may look something like this: https://mycompany-prod-1.oms.supply-chain.ibm.com/wsc/store/StartCustomerPickup?order_no=123456
