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.

Need support of HMC CLI on Novalink

When moving from HMC to Novalink i have the problem that all my scripts i wrote over years for adding / changing and deleting LPARS are not working anymore because Novalink doenst nuderstand HMC CLI commands e.g. lssyscfg etc. There is a development tool available to emulate HMC commands in Novalink named "pvm-core-dev"
but this is not officially supperted by IBM. I would like to see official support and development of this pvm-core-dev tool to make migration easier from HMC to Novalink.
