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 customer was looking at doing some predictive analytics, so that was the part that we focused on. They were also looking at how they could automate simple things within the analytics themselves. For example, if you can teach the machine the algorithms to do certain things, then it can… more »

How has it helped my organization?

IBM Watson Studio consistently automates across channels. When you're trying to build an end-to-end digital platform, it integrates consistently across your digital channel whether you're going through emails or shopping charts. That all is integrated into your call center. You use it mostly when… more »

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

It will come down again to cost. Some of the solutions are really good solutions but they can be a little too costly for many. I think a lot of software vendors have considered having special pricing for African countries. After the deployment in Johannesburg, I tried to pitch it to a local Telco… more »

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would give is to have your general design structured properly. That's how you can get the best out of it. Because the objectives would be really clear to everyone. You can know which ones to bring onboard. Then if you are deploying it a system integrator, you have to understand 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 is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the page search, where I can have it visit my competitor's website and search through all of their promotions and offerings. The SPSS Modeler components are all built-in, which is useful. The notebooks are… more »

What needs improvement?

The initial setup was complex.

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

We did not use another data science platform before this one.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is that it is really good for an enterprise-level organization. It is not really suitable for a small or medium-sized business. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently evaluating two other products. One of them is from Oracle and the other is from JDA.

What is IBM Watson Studio?

IBM Watson Studio provides tools for data scientists, application developers and subject matter experts to collaboratively and easily work with data to build and train models at scale. It gives you the flexibility to build models where your data resides and deploy anywhere in a hybrid environment so you can operationalize data science faster.
