"The solution is very easy to use.""The most important thing is that it's a multi-faceted solution. It's a kind of specialist, not a generalist.

It's specialty is that it's all on video.""The scalability of IBM Watson Studio is great.""The system's ability to take a look at data, segment it and then use that data very differently.""IBM Watson Studio consistently automates across channels.""It has a lot of data connectors, which is extremely helpful."

Cons
"I think better documentation or a step-by-step guide for installation would help, especially for on-premise users.""The ability to schedule scripts for the building and monitoring of jobs would be an advantage for this platform.""The interface could be improved. Other solutions, like Visual Studio, have much better UI.""One feature that I would like to see is being able to use a different language in a different cell, which would allow me to mix R and Python together.""I think that the framework can be improved to make it easier for people to discover and use things on their own.""Having a small guide or video on the tool would help learn how to use it and what the features are.""The solution would benefit from offering more automation.""One thing that hurts the product is that the company is not doing more to advertise it as a solution and make it more well known."

The solution could use an interactive dashboard that could make exploration easier.""So a better user interface could be very helpful""The decision making in their decision making feature is less good than other options.""It's sometimes easy to get lost given the number of images the solution opens up when you click on the mouse and the amount of different tabs.""Some of the solutions are really good solutions but they can be a little too costly for many.""The initial setup was complex."
