Delivering on the Promise of Self-Service Analytics


Last time IBM met with the BBBT, we talked about how self-service analytics are changing the way we architect and consume data in the enterprise. In order to enable self-service analytics, we had to turn the architecture upside down and understand how data is consumed by the many data-hungry roles in the organization. To do this, IBM has focused on four key roles: the application developer, the data engineer, the data scientist, and the business or citizen analyst. Our goal was to clearly understand how people in these roles search, shop, discover and collaborate on data. In June 2016 we announced the first offering which was the culmination of the research and work we had done on data science. The IBM Data Science Experience aims to simplify and change how data scientists work, allowing them to learn, discover and collaborate in one integrated environment. Today we have over 10,000 adopters. In addition, we also knew that to power these new experiences, we needed a new platform to support fluid data movement and trusted access to data. In September 2016, we announced Watson Data Platform, the first data platform to power cognitive decision making. Watson Data Platform enables data-driven professionals to work together in a simpler way to shop, discover and collaborate on data, which can yield insights into the business. The integrated platform features embedded machine learning capabilities and provides user-specific tools on the IBM Cloud. In February 2016, when we met last with the BBBT, we hinted at what we saw was to be the next generation analytics platform. We look forward to showing you how we have delivered on that promise.
