Advocacy & Requirements

The SHARE Requirements system is an online advocacy program for SHARE members to influence IBM products and services. SHARE members can submit, discuss and vote on requirements. Individual, corporate, and Emeritus members are encouraged to participate — this is a great opportunity to make your voice heard!

What is a Requirement?

A requirement is a statement suggested by SHARE members, describing a business need related to an IBM product, service, policy, or strategy of IBM, and must include a business justification. Requirements are ranked and voted on by SHARE membership, and are submitted as an organization of many customers to IBM. IBM then responds to the requirement back through SHARE.
