IBM Data and AI RegTech 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

Post ideas and requests to enhance a 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 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 offering manager team 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.

PCI Data Compliance

one of the things that is coming out of recent PCI reviews, is that the expectation that we can’t just rely on disk encryption to satisfy the requirements, but individual data/files need to be encrypted independently. This would obviously apply to the account field on the item table, but possibly others like user_field on the payment table, and fields in the payment_user table. Do you have any plans to support this and satisfy the PCI reqs ?

    Hello Wade,

    Today, we have no plans to become "PCI compliant" as none of the payment schemes/networks we support (or plan to support) require full PCI compliance. Until now, transport layer encryption and IBM middleware encryption capabilities have been sufficient to cover FTM client needs. Can you please clarify any specific industry requirements that are behind this request, or is this more of a bank specific request? We are not saying no at this point, but of course PCI compliance is a huge endeavor, so we don't plan on implementing it outside a very compelling reason to do so. Please let us know the details.
