Roadmap communications channel for Customers and Partners

As a platform owner (public, dedicated or local) I would like to know what services the applications on my platform is using, its status and when they may expire so I can give the applications time to move off of those service.  Currently the only mechanism is to monitor the announcement notices from the status page.  This would provide a one stop shop to understand the status of the services leveraged by the applications running on the platform.

    Dashboard should show monitoring - up/down of the environment, per org, per space, per app, per BM env, etc.

    As I understand, this is about communicating that a specific service/platform capability is being deprecated.

    you are correct, but also it would be great to see when major changes are coming and to which service.  Like a service roadmap that updates every quarter.

    I'm getting this request all the time by BNPP. How can we reconcile the very short lifecyles of the IBM Cloud services and the long lifecycles of the apps running on top? Eg, how can they know reasonably in advance what service will be deprecated, upgraded, they may have time to prepare and find alternatives, etc...if needed. The abrupt removal of the services impacted by GDPR has been very badly perceived.
