Overall Satisfaction with IBM Data Science Experience (DSx)

We use IBM DSx in the whole company, mostly in the field of research; we address it to predictive and descriptive analysis.
  • DSx is very useful for viewing data from different points of view (via Watson Analytics)
  • DSx is very powerful with its Python and R ambient integrated within
  • DSx is a good tool for collaborative machine learning procedures
  • DSx ...
  • By now we are just testing but it surely had a good impact on the time reduced for getting such powerful analysis
It is the first product we tried.
DSx very good for descriptive and predictive analysis. We gifted our manager with this new tool so that our equipment can be used for research purposes based upon analysis and new features that could be achieved after a predictive analysis. We use both of them, inverting the order, sometimes, testing our ideas or being inspired by a different point of view upon our data.

Using IBM Data Science Experience (DSx)

5 - IT technicians that are on a path to becoming data scientists.
2 - Programmers, mathematics, physics
  • Predictive analysis
  • Descriptive analysis
  • analysis of data integrity
  • with DSX we have found several new points of view on the matter that concerns our analysis: it made possible to watch our data from 2 steps backwards and that allowed us to move 4 steps forward on our comprehension of the phenomena that we were studying
  • we are thinking about what we call DSX over DSX which means that, according to the results we found and to the paths that lead us to them, we are modyfing our own procedures as well and they became our new field of study: the time used for 'cleanin' data has been well spent because now we can think about their structure and remodelling the whole procedure that concerns with data itself
because we find out that DSX results have improved our approach to the whole subject (data, models, procedures)

Evaluating Data Science Experience and Competitors

  • Product Reputation
  • Existing Relationship with the Vendor
Read many reviews and articles about case studies
I would try demo version of the most credited choices

Data Science Experience Implementation

It surprised us with unpredictable case of use and brand new points of view
Yes - Analysis of data, import steps, normalizing data, test and development of solution
  • watson analytics
  • predictive analysis

Data Science Experience Training

  • Online training
  • In-person training
  • Self-taught
The trainers on the job are very smart with solutions and very able in teaching
The Platform is very handy and suggests further steps according my previous interests
Platform lead you step by step in acquiring the knowledge that one needs

Data Science Experience Support

I received answers mostly at once and got answered even further my question: they gave me interesting points of view and suggestion for deepening in the learning path
Quick Resolution
Good followup
Knowledgeable team
Problems get solved
Kept well informed
No escalation required
Immediate help available
Support understands my problem
Support cares about my success
Quick Initial Response
At the beginning I was wondering how to parse my typemismatched data and they showed how DSX itself could help, via machine learning, in refining the procedures of business intelligence for parsing purposes

Using Data Science Experience

Everything is so handy
Like to use
Relatively simple
Easy to use
Technical support not required
Well integrated
Feel confident using
  • Notebook editing with the integrated interpreter of code
  • Not yet had this experience
Not Sure - I am going to check it out soon

Data Science Experience Reliability

It helped us in getting from 0 to DSX without getting lost
From time to time there are services unavailable, but we have been always informed before and they got back to work sooner than expected
Never had slow response even on our very busy network

Relationship with IBM

They were always ready to response and find out comfortable location for presentation
He kept following our requests even after sale
We could find together which were the best options to be activated for our special purposes
Keep on like this
