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.

IKS to DevX Funnel

As an enterprise developer or devops engineer, I want to easily deploy content to my new and existing cluster. Especially after creating a blank cluster, I want to be guided into a flow where I can understand IBM DevOps and deploy an application to this fresh cluster.

As an IBM offering manager, I am interested in driving qualified traffic from IKS to IBM Cloud developer experience.

Abbreviated Flow: From the Kubernetes Cluster Detail Page, add a DevOps Toolchain header tab that encourages users to connect the cluster to a toolchain. Clicking the "Create a toolchain" button takes the user into the filtered DevOps templates page, showing only the Kube target templates. The cluster information from the kubernetes page is used to pre-fill as much of the Kube devops templates as possible. From here, it follows the standard devops toolchain creation flow.

The empty state of the DevOps Toolchains tab has a graphic and text to encourage toolchain creation. The populated state is a list-view of all toolchain referencing this cluster, along with key information on each toolchain.
