What is most valuable?

On the selfish side, possibly advancing my career. But, really, I would say the big thing is being able to utilize some data streams that we haven't tapped into, or maybe not... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It hasn't yet, it's still under PoC. What I can say is that, of all the directors and senior managers, senior directors, and SVPs that have seen the MVP, they've been quite... more»

What needs improvement?

I haven't played with it in depth enough really to answer this so much. The scheduling is always tricky when you're trying to get a big group together. People are people, so unless... more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the product at eight out of 10. It is a little bit tricky to get used to the workflow of knowing how to train Watson, what can be provided, what can't be, how to... more»

What is most valuable?

Valuable features are the aggregation mode, that's one of the tool sets. And then, training the models, it can also be utilized for that.

How has it helped my organization?

Implementing the solution really helped with manual labor, it takes care of a lot of FT work. For example, you could have 30 or 40 physical... more»

What needs improvement?

I would say, give some kind of a community edition, a free edition. A lot of companies do, even Amazon gives you some kind of trial and error... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We actually had nothing before this. People had a business problem, and they came to us, and this was available, part of a suite, and we started... more»

What other advice do I have?

Look at the entire gambit, and look for your specific use case, or specific business problem you're trying to solve. Analytics is a big, wide... more»

Mar 27 2018

What is most valuable?

The ability to easily pull together lots of different pieces of information and drill down in a smarter way than has been possible with other analytics tools. Watson is all based... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We're still in the exploratory stages. We're a business partner for IBM's customers, so we're wrapping our hands around it to be able to explain it and show the value to customers.... more»

What needs improvement?

Much of IBM operates this way, where they have sets of tools that are in the middleware space, and it becomes the customer's responsibility or the business partner's responsibility... more»

What other advice do I have?

I don't think there's a figure factor about getting into the space. I think for most people it's just so new that they don't know a) what it could do for them or b) how to go about... more»

Head of Commercialization at Woodside Energy
Mar 27 2018

What is most valuable?

I'm a user more than I am a developer, but for us it's the ability to ingest and then retrieve information from a range of separate sources; the ability to dissect questions in... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Previously we'd have a set of health and safety analysts who would be the key focal points for doing work to understand health and safety risks; so a very small number of people.... more»

What needs improvement?

WEX is more a platform, I believe, than it is the application. I could talk about what I'm looking for in the application. We've done visualizations and we can do basic analysis... more»

What other advice do I have?

I think we'll get it to a 10, but I think at the moment it's got to be a good eight or nine out of 10 at least. I think for me, safety is about a conversation. It's about... more»

What is most valuable?

Today, integration of voice commands is the focus of development.

How has it helped my organization?

The new feature of the application is voice commands, and last week the bank began marketing to educate, to talk to people about voice commands in the app; that it is a new feature... more»

What needs improvement?

In the next three months, Bradesco will start to working with the AIX operating system. Today it is working on Solaris but all of the machines are being switched.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to 10, for me this product is an 11. I love WebSphere, I love the integration with Watson. It's very interesting. I am working with a great IBM team, and the... more»

Sales Engineer at a tech vendor with 501-1,000 employees
Mar 27 2018

What is most valuable?

Ease of use is pretty good and the standardization of not actually having to have my own natural learning algorithms, just to use the Watson APIs.

How has it helped my organization?

It's been good, it's helped further the relationship with IBM. We're also discussing feature integration points for Watson on the GitHub platform.

What needs improvement?

More cognitive feedback would be good. The natural language analysis is great, the sentiment analyzers are great. But I would just like to see more - I don't know what those ideas... more»

What other advice do I have?

The most important criteria when selecting a vendor are their * knowledge * expertise. I would rate it a seven. It's easy to use but I'm still in PoC stages. Be sure you have an... more»

Mar 28 2018

How has it helped my organization?

If a human would do this kind of job, we would need some 200 people working all day to read and interpret the papers. This is why we chose Watson to do the job for us. So it's the time to read and interpret and classify all the articles.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We have been using a paid index from a company called Xlibris. We saw that we needed to buy or build our own solution. We chose Watson because it has federated search and automated color. These are the main features that we needed. We also... more»

What other advice do I have?

There are really only four solutions in this industry. What impressed me more about Watson is that it is easy to use it, not for the technical people, but for business people. The approach of the solution is 85% of the effort is from the... more»

Technical Director at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
Mar 28 2018

What is most valuable?

The valuable feature of Watson Explorer for us is data entities, and being able to see hidden insights from within unstructured data.

How has it helped my organization?

Some of our customers benefit from improved experience with their customers, and others among our customers are using it to analyze data and data entities.

What needs improvement?

It needs better language support, to include some other languages. Also, they should improve the user interface.

Which solutions did we use previously?

In terms of going with this solution, in our country it's an easy choice because Watson Explorer supports our language. It's one of the only solutions they can select.
