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.

Add Language Pack to Windows 2012R2,2016 update server to Bluemix Infrastructure

When you want to add language other than English, you need to ask support for adding language by ticket. This is time consuming both for user and Bluemix Operator.  If language pack is included in Windows update server properly, user can add language without asking by ticket. I guess. So I would like to have this setting for language. The OS is both windows 2012R2 and windows 2016.

    Hello Eric,

    Our customer required non-English language, too. Even not include a language pack in VSI images, if you post language pack for Windows server 2016 on WSUS in SoftLayer datacenter, this will help us.

    Hello Tomoari - The reason why we don't add additional Language Packs into our Windows 2012, 2012 R2 or 2016 images because  it will increase the size of the VSI images, which means longer provision times for everyone, not just the ones that want the expanded languages.

     It helps non-Engilsh users on Windows to reduce their barrier to adopt "cloud", especially for Japanese enterprise customers.
