Overall Satisfaction with IBM Data Science Experience (DSx)

I experienced IBM Data Science Experience on my own. It's not used by a department or across the whole organization. I used IBM Data Science Experience to process some data sets and learn more about ML algorithms.


  • The presentation of data is extremely awesome.
  • To write code and see its output immediately makes it easier for beginners like me.


  • Sometimes, it took several minutes to get operation results. It's not as quick as I use notebook which deployed in LAN.
  • All pages are in English, it would be much easier to start if pages can be presented in my mother tongue.
  • Simple and Convenient.
  • Ali PAI and H2O
First, I have to deploy H2O myself. Then 4 paradigm cannot customize code and run customized code as easily as IBM DSX. Last, I should say AliPAI is a good alternative, but it's too expensive.
For data sets with big volume, it takes too long to upload to the cloud. Besides, some data is sensitive, it's forbidden to make it public. It would be suitable for the education industry. For example, it provides examples and tutorials for ML beginners.
