Cloud Management and AIOps

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

Last value stuffing to satisfy lower granularity

Data being analyzed comes in different data granularity. A Predictive Insights Topic only supports 1 granularity. We would like the application to select metrics for back stuffing to support lower bounds granularity instead of using the upper bounds highest granularity.

Idea priority High
Use Case
I have CPU and Memory at 5 minute granularity in the source system. Disk summary Reads and Writes are at 15 minute granularity. We would like the last value of Reads and Writes to be added at the 5 minute interval gaps. In the example below for Reads and Writes the last value of 43 and 32 would be repeated for the next 2 time periods. Time 1 Time 2 Time 3 Time 4 MEMORY 10 14 23 23 CPU 43 53 64 54 Reads 32 32 32 44 Writes 12 12 12 44
