We’re listening! Seeking YOUR feedback on IBM Software consumability


I'd like to pass along a request for assistance from my colleagues in the software consumability group, but you're all really the ones who would benefit from it.

Several years ago, Steve Mills launched a challenge to find a way to make our many products and solutions across IBM's Software Group more cohesive, consistent and easily to integrate together in your (our clients') environment.  Since we started tracking this effort in January 2007, there have been over 1,400 such improvements targeted across the Software Group product portfolio, with more than 900 of them already available in shipping products.

To help us continue this effort, we are asking for help in completing a survey on your personal first hand experiences trying to select, acquire, prototype, integrate, operate, manage and upgrade a specific IBM product (of your choice); we want to understand your specific issues and priorities.

The survey, which due to the level of feedback necessary for meaningful change can take 20-30 minutes to complete, is available in 10 languages, including English, Brasilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Japanese, German, Spanish, French, and Italian, and we would appreciate in particular responses from those of you outside of the United States.
