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.

Use values in a field on one object as selection values ("dropdown" values) in a field on another object

When we record errors we need to capture the Stock name and Ticker/ID, Security Type, Portfolio in which the error occurred, impacted Portfolio Managers, the person who identified the error (not necessarily a GRC User), the person/people who were responsible for the error/control breakdown, etc. We have the Employee object and a custom object created by IBM that contains two record types with different fields - Security and Portfolio. The list of Securities is ever growing and too large to maintain a dropdown list. Same for Employee. We need to be able to select values from a field on another object. We could associate an Employee record to the error, but that doesn't tell you if that associated Employee was the person who found or caused the error. And we can't easily filter on errors affecting specific securities or portfolios if we just associate it as a child of the error.
