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.

OpenPages Audit Management Sampling

Sampling Requirement;
'Open Pages IAM should provide a medium to gather population from external system & apply sampling techniques and reverse sampling techniques to generate sample tests for audit planning, IIA recommended sampling techniques should be configurable."

Proposed Solution:

Respected development Team to create sampling object, the object should allow following methods to upload population;

  • Excel (FastMap) upload

  • ETL

Once population is extracted, object should allow selecting any of sampling techniques like Random Sampling, N Sampling or Stratified Sampling. Object should allow copy results of sampling in sampling object for testing.

Please note, Sampling is requirement of any Audit process, its important to keep sampling to pitch Open Pages Audit Management as end to end solution. SAP, ours major competitor in this region, also offers this feature

    Thank you again for submitting this RFE!

    IBM has considered the request. While we are aligned with the request, it is unlikely to be addressed in the next 18 months. If this request receives continued customer interest, it may be resubmitted for consideration after 18 months from the submit date.

    One of the key diffciulties we face in selling IAM is that OpenPages doesn't give its auditors samples with workpapers, sampling and tests are sampling are done outside the system which is can not be tracked and managed. We would live to have this feature.
