IBM Power Ideas Portal

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 this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to 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 Power teams 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 notification 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.

Bring back Pins Pane in HMC V10!

We use the Pins Pane on a regular basis. It's very useful to group resources and easily access them in the quickest way possible. For some reason this feature was removed in HMC V10. Now customers can no longer take advantage of this time saving feature. Therefore, there are more clicks and "hidden" or out of sight resources that would need to be found in order to access them. The goal here is to increase productivity as much as possible.

    Hi, thanks for replying!

    So it was not soo much an issue of "finding menu's", but rather a way to group and visualize our similar (i.e. Production P9, etc.) systems quickly with NO additional clicks (i.e. viewing them no matter the page option that's selected. Currently w/o Pins, its not possible to see our customized groupings of systems without going through the steps to expand and find these resources! Alternatively, with Pins, we dont have to click at all to constantly "view" our grouped systems. It's always visible, which is the main purpose of this Pins feature IMO. I really dont see any other option being able to replace this feature, but will be happy to answer any other questions or ideas.

    Hi Shane,

    We will evaluate adding the feature back. Can you please provide inputs on if the feature was primarily used because of complexity in finding menus and doing multiple clicks? If the number of clicks required to get to certain page is reduced, would you still use the Pins feature ?

    This lost feature in V10 HMC code should never of happened as it increases workflow rather than diminishing it. Continual efforts on the part of the developer should be to always make it easier, quicker, more efficient for the user base, so I am at a quandary as to why this valuable feature was removed.
