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.

Enable Control Center reports to display in multiple time zones

Currently when a user starts to setup a report to be ran, Control Center defaults with the time zone that the console preferences are set it.  There is a drop down menu for other time zones, but when a user selects one of these, the report will not display that time zone unless the time zone is set in the console preferences.  That doesn't make sense to me.  The console preferences shouldn't impact on how a report is displayed.  The report should display the time zone the user selected.

    Agree that time zones should be easily consumed by SCI users. This could potentially be solved by adding a preferred time zone attribute to user profiles so SCI could convert the stored GMT/UTC time to the user's local time zone.
