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.

For product documentation, see Knowledge Center.

Multiple User sessions to FTM MER, AO and RMA facilities

Multiple User sessions to FTM MER, AO, and RMA facilities

As of now, all users are allowed to log in to multiple sessions at multiple workstations at once. This should not be allowed, instead, the previous session should be kicked out whenever the user is logging in at another workstation.

Requirement to configure FTM MER, AO, and RMA facilities to block Multiple User sessions?

    PBB has confirmed that this is Malaysia Central Bank guideline for all Software. Without this security control PBB will be marked Non-compliance, PBB will not able to use this SW. The impact is serious.

    Hi Paul, as per Vijay explained :

    Malaysia Banking Policy - System should not allow multiple concurrent sessions , instead the previous session should be terminated whenever the user is logging in at another workstation.

    Manually maintaining a single working session (by the user) is not an option as recommended in FTM for SWIFT knowledge center.

    We need more information on why this is required.

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.
