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 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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on-premises, containers, cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management

  • Cloud Pak for Network Automation - incl Orchestration and Performance Management

  • Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps - incl Netcool Operations Management portfolio

TNPM. Upgrade of JBoss to RHEL supported version

When scanning vulnereability of our application server(s), we've noticed that JBoss 4.x is no longer supported by Red Hat, which caused vulnerability flags. We've been informed that JBoss itself is tightly integrated with TNPMW application, so upgrading JBoss on its own is not possible and it is not on IBM's roadmap either right now.

Adapting application to new version of Jboss, especially one supported by RedHat would maybe open the door for new improvements, but at the moment it would be useful to have security from vulnerability standpoint.

    Thank you for the information. Can you tell us where we can find these training services that are offered by Persistent Systems to learn how to develop custom Tech Packs on TNCP (because we are interested in this new solution)?

    This enhancement request cannot be progressed. It would require a very large development effort. End of Support has already been announced for TNPM (Effective April 30, 2023). The way forward is to plan a migration project to move to TNCP. Clients can also avail of a license trade up from TNPM to TNCP. Where required, training services are offered by Persistent Systems to enable BP/Client to develop custom Tech Packs on TNCP.
