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

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 notification 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.

IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.

In order to safeguard your information, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.

NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions

New Automation Script Launch Point to Support Roles

Maximo automation scripts enable organizations to extend Maximo functionality without downtime and without having to write custom java classes. We'd like to see support added for an automation script launch point in the Roles application to replace custom java classes. Workflows and Communication Templates use roles to determine who should be notified/get assigned. Most of the time, this results in using database relationships to show data related to a record.

Some situations are more complicated and can't be handled with a SQL where clause. We'd like to be able to handle these situations without needing custom java classes so we can make changes without rebuilding and redeploying the ears.
