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.


Specific link you will want to bookmark for future use

IBM Unified Ideas Portal - https://ideas.ibm.com/ - Use this site to create or search for existing Ideas across all IBM products that are outside of Power, and track all of your personal interactions with all Ideas.

It just needs some serious updating.


Use Case:

Avoid confusion trying things no longer supported.

    I see that most references to CRTDEVDKT are removed but there is still a link to it at
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_74/rzaks/rzaksoutputsp.htm
    And, the command CRTDEVDKT still exists at 7.4 but should probably be removed since I do not believe that any model of Power System capable of supporting 7.4 will support diskette drives.

    Documents will be updated after function updated, this depends on https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=122094.

    In my opinion, this is not an RFE, but a task / duty of IBM to remove / correct obsolete or incorrect commands, descriptions, instructions from their KnowledgeCenter.
