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.

New Receipt technology

We all know that keeping our receipt is actually a huge hassle to each one of us. We can misplace them, accidentally soaked in the water etc. Making this new technology that I will propose will help not only the people but the nature itself. I think electronic Receipts or paperless receipts will help us keep our receipt safely especially those receipts with warranty that are actually very important to not misplace it. This kind of idea might be too early in this generation to be implemented, but later on this idea will be a great help and solution to each of us people. Instead of using paper to put all the item that we bought why not put it in the phone so people can see their receipt/transaction every time and also receipts with warranty will be safely stored in the phone and by using cloud all their transactions and receipts will be stored there. We know that every day people can receive many receipts. Since, every transaction that we made will actually be printed with receipts. There are even store's that have this kind of features like amazon, example url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrmMk1Myrxc. Amazon might be the first company to offer paperless receipts of your transaction.
