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.

Expose the iNavigator import CA certs via an API

New Navigator for i - Shortcut to ACS 5250 emulation

It would be neat to have a shortcut to ACS 5250 emulation from the i Nav node list (or as an alternative in the menu list to the far left, when you have chosen a system in the node list/bubble view). Then you wouldn't have to start or switch to AC...

Support 132 Columns on most WRKxxx Screens

Using WRKSPLF, WRKOUTQ, WRKJOB WRKACTJOB, DSPJOBLOG and others is frustrating due to 80-column screen output used in those interfaces. Only DSPSPLF had the foresight to incorporate so called wide screen mode. We need 132 column support in Work Man...
