Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Starter Kits

Used to test prototype applications for clients. Mostly used for creating predictive data models, descriptive models, and basic ETL. There are plans to test new speech-to-text and image-to-text applications for new clients in 2021. Cloud storage is a secondary use since it is the only platform that supports older or legacy databases
  • Auto AI makes creating predictive models so much easier and faster. It creates several models and ranks them according to precision (or accuracy) allowing us to rapidly select the most optimized model. While the models are not perfect at the first run, it gives us an idea on which models to focus on cutting the turnaround times from 3 days to less than 4 hours.
  • The cloud structure allows us to reuse datasets that are in different projects. This cuts down the need to create new pipelines or ETL steps.
  • Auto AI allows us to select the best models to use when creating predictive models. The app ranks and lists down the models according to accuracy (or precision0. This alone is worth the subscription as it cut down our turnaround times from 3 days to 1 day.
  • Positive: reduce our turnaround times were reduced from 3 days to 1 day. This allows us to create more models and service more clients.
Easy to use, but still requires a lot of coding to use. There is no ranking of models used and models are not persistent, which means you have to keep running the models again every time you leave the session. The filesystem is clunky and need to keep authorizing Google Drive to save any datasets.

Yes

Would you buy IBM Watson Studio on Cloud Pak for Data again?

Yes

It is well suited for mechanistic models such as time series and descriptive analysis. There is almost no code necessary when creating these models, as it takes the guesswork out of setting up the parameters. There are also models that we've never before even tried because of its complexities but AutoAI shows that these models are sometimes best for the given problem.
