IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

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 vote them if they matter to you.

  1. To post a new idea - select "Add a new idea" and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

  2. Vote 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.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

create a Watson personal assistant to help us with everything within bluemix

I love Watson and so do all people, Watson is going to change the way we look at things, but first, people need to get to know Watson.
I say, integrate a smart Watson assistant within blue mix, it could answer any question e.g. which file can I use to change the settings of my application? or hi how are you? or how do I start a new Java project?
with Watson's dialog and verbal capabilities this is possible I believe or hope. And it would just be brilliant to talk to someone as smart as Watson, it could become your best friend xD

    We are in the process of defining a clear "getting started" experience in the platform. Expect more from us on this soon!

    Today our personalization work across the platform is designed to deliver the same set of user benefits, giving helpful context to support them in their platform workflow. This sort of personal assistance is being delivered in context. Closing this idea.

    Thank you for the idea - it is a valid requirement that would improve the Bluemix experience. We are currently looking at some improvements in the getting started experience that will address the experience gaps. We can not commit to integrating a Watson assistant in the experience but we'll keep it in mind for future iterations.

    Great idea. Easy way to showcase Watson while at the same time improving end user/developer experience. In addition to the above why not use Watson to help on any of the internal searches, knowledgebase integration, etc. I would make it optional to use and then everyone could compare manual approach vs Watson assisted. If you provided some information on the type of application you were trying to build I could see Watson easily finding relevant examples for you, snipets of code or making suggestions on relevant services that you may want to include. Watson Assisted Software Development. Now that would be a whole new twist on agile.
