Overall Satisfaction with IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog

Data Catalogue is still not a widely adopted concept particularly because of the maturity level of information technology as a concept in capital intensive industries. I can speak particularly for the Energy sector where there is a gradual shift towards managing data as a service. Efforts are being made to look at the holistic system capabilities and IBM Watson Knowledge Catalogue definitely made the cut.
  • Ready to use data catalog experience with years of IBM consulting experience is helpful.
  • Particularly helpful if the client is in the IBM ecosystem like IBM Maximo.
  • Effective asset data management ready to deploy tools.
  • I think an industry-specific data catalog service will be good.
  • Effective alignment of IBM consulting services and bringing in an Industry point of view will be great.
  • Effective reach out like roadshows, etc. will be good.
  • Too early to determine ROI.
  • I have had cases where IBM Watson has been offered with a suite of services
  • With strengths in enterprise asset management, it has a lot of potential to be the platform of choice.
Azure is definitely a strong competition considering that it has machine learning capabilities too.
I think clients who are already on the IBM Ecosystem will immensely benefit from this tool. Also, it depends on the long term strategy of the organization. If the long term goal is to develop an Operations Business Intelligence Platform then tools provided by the IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog platform will be really good.
