Product Details

What is IBM Cloud Foundry?

IBM Cloud Foundry is an IBM version of the open-source platform designed to make it easier and faster to build, test, deploy, and scale applications. Enterprises can now run Cloud Foundry in a public isolated environment, while natively integrating with other IBM Cloud services, such as AI, Blockchain, IoT, and data tools.

Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (CFEE) runs on a Kubernetes service, which reduces complexity by giving development teams a comprehensive set of familiar tools under one management umbrella. CFEE allows IT organizations to safeguard their existing investment in Cloud Foundry, while seamlessly bringing in new skill sets that will lead to building apps that provide contemporary customer experiences.

We planned on incorporating Watson into our platform as well, for voice recognition. Bluemix would have made it easier to do this and helped us with that, but we ended up pushing the feature further down the roadmap. I've used Watson before with success, so I'm sure if we had chosen to go further with Bluemix, Watson and the AlchemyAPIs would not have been far behind.

We aimed to create a cognitive and emotionally engaging virtual agent using IBM Bluemix Services. To do so, a level humanization is needed. Communication is a two-way street, and thus cognition is necessitated from both a recognition and response perspective. In other words we needed a set of services that would enable us to create a virtual agent who could understand natural language, cognitively compute the signals, and thus respond appropriately. We aimed to replace specific human tasks, so we needed to replicate the type and levels of human cognition needed for these tasks.

I believe there is a lot of potential to use Watson services in the future, but my current applications do not require this functionality yet. Although I do see this changing in the not-too-distant future. Having them available directly accessible within the Bluemix environment will be extremely convenient with the need to integrate with these services arises.
