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.

Please change the icon for Rational Developer for i (RDi)

Please change the icon for Rational Developer for i (RDi). The current one is horrible and looks like a fuzzy dark meaningless spot. When this icon was originally changed about 2 years ago I called support thinking there was a problem with my install. Somehow the icon got corrupted. It did not appear to be a proper icon. I can change the desktop icon myself but that does not change the icon that shows on my taskbar or the icon that appears in the upper left corner of the application.


Use Case:

This is mainly aesthetic.
However it is something that bothers me every time I use the product.
The colors of the icon are muted and dark.
The shape is unrecognizable - possibly a poorly drawn bullseye. Nothing that would make you think this is an IDE.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Completely agree on this one... I use Windows 10 Dark theme, I have RDi pinned to my taskbar, but can never see it. Almost black logo on an almost black taskbar, it needs some contrast colors.
