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 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.

Porting user defined sw bundles from BFI to ICD via ITIC

Our customer defines the SW bundles by itself in BigFixInventory. Now, it wants to porting them to ICD in order to have an integrated environment for matching SW licenses acquired and SW installed and not to redo the work. The data from Big Fix Inventory will be ported to ICD but they will be in read only mode.

Idea Priority Urgent
Use Case
The data of the user defined SW bundles from BigFixInventory will be ported via ITIC to ICD. The need is to modify the ITIC mappings in order to get all the data. Maybe it will be necessary some tables, a copy of the SW catalog tables? The tables will be available to a BI tool as Cognos.
