"A fresh way to look at Analytics"

What do you like best?

The best feature is the NLP (Natural Language Processing) feature where you can directly type in the question you want to be answered by the platform and it can give you suggestions on how to get along with it. Even if you do not ask questions it still recommends a few ways to get your analysis started.

What do you dislike?

The data that you need to upload needs to be extensively cleaned and that is a big challenge. The platform has also limitations in terms of models that you can run on it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get your data ready and your questions that need to be answered in place if you want to fully utilize this platform and explore its full potential.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving a climate change problem by using the data from the World Bank. My aim is to find the variables that impact C02 emissions globally.

"IBM Watson Analytics adds the power of AI/automation to your data analysis!"

What do you like best?

The automation of basic VLookup and Pivot Table functionality which enables you to quickly determine if X increases, what occurs with Y. Very causal tool.

What do you dislike?

Do to the query functionality being open ended, you really have to know what it is that you are trying to ask. Otherwise, Watson provides so much information/value that it'll answer 10 queries aside from what you're actually trying to uncover.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We use it in conjunction with other data analysis platforms... I'm not certain it's ready to be a completely stand-alone solution yet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data & Research & Analysis... Allows us to more closely understand our business metrics.
