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.

Have FTM Public Views That Mirror Control Center's UI Data Model

The FTM Control Center's operational data model consists of:
- Inbound Physical Transmission
- Inbound Transmission
- Inbound Batch
- Processing Batch
- Inbound Segments
- Transactions
- Endpoints
- Outbound Batches
- Outbound Transmissions
- Outbound Physical Transmissions

Have FTM PFS public (aka FTMPUB) database views mirror this structure and allow a person to join data across these views. Some example view names are:

The views should be consistent with the following guiding principles:
1) Easily map to the Control Centers user interface data model
2) Have a naming convention consistent with FTM-base
3) Allow for linking of data across the related element (e.g. Batches to the containing Transmissions)
4) Allow for the linking of data objects across the FTM-base and FTM PFS components
5) Balance the need for backwards compatibility and API adoption by deprecating the IPD/check name-based views such as: GW_FILE_STAT_V, INBOUND_FILE_DATA
6) When payment type specific transaction data is required then create payment type specific views such as: CHECK_TRANSACTION_DATA_V and ACH_TRANSACTION_DATA_V.
7) When other payment type specific views are required then create views using a naming pattern of PAYMENT_TYPE_XXXX. Ideally the views are based upon the generic views and appends the additional data/columns.

    New views were created as part of v3.2 ,   Please take a look at those to see if they address this specific idea.

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions
