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.

Improve the new Bluemix console

The new console has bad design! it wastes so much of my screen and displays way less information than the current console.

About 1/3 of my screen width is wasted by empty space. Why?

Columns that display number of instances or amount of memory are super wide, yet, their content is between 1 and 4 digits. Why such wide columns for four digits?

What's the worse is that the name of the application, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THERE, is the shortest(narrow) column!

To sum it up, this new console makes me less productive, I hope the old console will stay around.

    Glad to receive the feedback on the console design. I will set up a meeting with design team and tomasz@ca.ibm.com and Jim Conallen for additional feedback.

    ditto...    way too much wasted space (especially vertical space, which is at a premium on this 13" macbook)

    Thanks for the idea Tomas.  I've assigned this to the owning OM to follow up, but your feedback is coming through loud an clear. What I'd like us to focus on is how to make the new console better (even if it is taking queues from our old console and re-implementing the most used features in the new console)
