What is most valuable?

We are looking for ways to automate even more. So, we are trying to avoid any manual effort currently necessary. With the whole machine learning part currently at the top of the market, we are trying… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The main benefit is the ease of use. We see a lot of engineers in our site and customers that really like the way the tools are able to work with the people. This is valuable for us. Also, how it… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like to see it more web-based with more functionality. We would like to see it less as one big, massive product, but more based on smaller services that we can then roll out to consumers. In… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had been using many different types of products across all organizations. We decided to standardize. IBM was able to offer a complete suite that we then rolled out to all the domains.

What other advice do I have?

I would not enforce the same standard across all organizations. It depends on the scope and the size of an organization, as well as the journey where you want to go to. As a financial institution, it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I think the only vendor that could offer a similar solution is Oracle, which is then the alternative. It is all about partnership and that they came along for the journey. We feel that they are very… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the system's ability to take a look at data, segment it and then use that data very differently. What I'm referring to is machine learning which can be applicable for other data sets without having to carry out the process all over again. It's a very powerful feature. In… more»

What needs improvement?

I'm not yet familiar enough with the product to talk about improvements but one aspect that comes to mind from what I've seen is that sometimes it's 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. It might be easy for… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For now, we're using the light edition which is free but I'm sure once we decide to go commercial with it, we will pay some license for it.

What other advice do I have?

The general advice I would give is that people should think twice about the kind of results that they are seeking. This is general for any system, not only IBM products, but they should be aware of the resources that they're sitting on that is data. Based on the brief experience I've had with the… more»

What is most valuable?

The most important thing is that it's a multi-faceted solution. It's a kind of specialist, not a generalist. It can produce very specific information for the customer. It's totally different from Google or any search engine that produces generic information. It's specialty is that it's all on video. It's professional. AI is an important part of Watson Studio.

What needs improvement?

The product is already really great but for most researchers or a person like me, there are few templates to try something new. So we're limited. Also, I think to make the most of Watson Studio the user interface needs to be improved. For the developer or the engineer, it could be very easy to use but to a person or a text analyzer, they could have some problems using it. So a better user… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it around eight or nine out of ten because sometimes I experience some unknown error.

What is most valuable?

The computer version was very helpful. It returns approximately five clusters of the projected features. The solution is very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

When I'm exploring the data and it takes me to another page, when I want to return to my workflow, it returns me to the first step. I'm not sure if this is typical but it was my experience. It would be great to make it easier to explore the data and complete the workflow using the same method. More features in data virtualization would be helpful. The solution could use an interactive dashboard… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're an IBM partner. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Every feature is good in Watson Studio.

What needs improvement?

Improving it just like the features in Google Dialogflow and Small Talk. If these features were also in IBM Watson Studio that would work for us.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Google Dialogflow but the setup and running were very complicated. So that's why we moved on to IBM Watson Studio.

What other advice do I have?

IBM Watson Studio has great features but the decision making in their decision making feature is less good than other options. If IBM Watson would improve their decision based system, then definitely IBM Watson could perform the role of an… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated Google Dialogflow and Amazon. In the end we chose IBM Watson Studio because the training and features in Dialogflow are very complicated.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Reputation * Being a start up, we need to have good technical support. There are big players that would not even talk with start ups. * Two-way communication is really important, especially for something as new as this, which is why we have weekly meetings. It is helpful on both sides.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We started looking at IBM with Urban US. That is where we made the connection. We did look at some open source products, but nothing in particular, as IBM stuck out.
