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.

Present All New Password validation errors at once.

I am a consultant. I work on MANY systems each with their own set of password rules. At times I spend as much as half a bloody hour changing my password. WHY? Because I do not have access to their password rules. As such I attempt a new password. I am told: You broke rule 1, no characters may be repeated. I try again, I am told: You broke rule 2: same character cannot appear more than once. I try again, I am told: You broke rule 3: A character in this password is in same place as it was in previous password. I try again: I am told: You broke rule 4: A number is required in the password. I try again: I am told: You broke rule 5. And on it goes.

If I was told ALL the rules I broke instead of ONLY the first rule I would savealotta time changing my passwords!!
