IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Cloud and its products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).


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:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Post your ideas
  1. Post an idea.

  2. Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.

  3. Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

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.
