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.

OP RCM description fields to be made longer string length

It is our understanding that the description field in the different objects is a "system" field, and therefore its attributes cannot be changed.

For the requirement and requirement evaluation object types, we request the description field to be made a longer string length. We have many occasions (see 3 examples attached) where a regulator's requirement (ie obligation/clause, etc) is longer than the permitted string length for this field.

Currently we have to split the content across multiple requirements. This is causing our compliance assessors difficulties during the assessment process, and also we have to manually adjust our management information to ensure we reflect the correct number of requirements assessed.
