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. Post an idea

  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.

Do not ask for credit card number -

There is little value in having the credit card number of an account that has too little activity to charge. It almost deterred me and when I recommended Bluemix to a friend, this is one of the first things he mentioned. I had to reassure him that he will not come close to the thresholds while in development. Parse.com does not ask for a credit card. It allows you to just jump in. This is very attractive to a scrappy startup that has no idea what load he will place on a Paas service.

    We're working on just this. Later in 2016, we’ll guide new users to only the “essentials” (for free) and let them start a full product trial at any point afterwards. Exciting stuff coming, stay tuned for updates.
