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

DWC View Efficiencies

There are multiple DWC queries required for my Operations team to use each shift. We recently migrated to Workload Automation 9.5 and find it inefficient to manually run each query at the top of every shift (e.g.: All Workstations in plan, All Jobs in plan, All Job Streams in plan and several custom queries). The dashboard doesn't provide the efficiencies we require.

Is there an automated way to quickly (and painlessly) run multiple console queries?

    Apologies for missing your replies. Thank you for the response! Ideally, I'd like a more efficient method to access queries such as: All Workstations in plan, All Jobs in plan, Abends, Running, as well as custom queries such as Userjobs, Final Post Reports and JnextPlan/Final. At the top of each shift, my team runs these queries; a time consuming effort. And although I favor 9.5 over the previous version we used - 9.3, the older version allowed easy navigation from one view to another via "All Configured Tasks". Less mouse clicks were required in that older version to open the various views as mentioned above.

    Since we received no explanation on why the dashboards do no address this requirement we close it for now. The solution for this kind of requirements is certainly the dashboard, if this is not working as expected we should receive a detailed description of the issues.

    Could you please explain why you think that the dashboard doesn't provide the efficiencies you require? This explanation is too generic, would you like to have a call to discuss it?
