Overall Satisfaction with Watson Studio (formerly IBM Data Science Experience)

Currently it is me and two other people in my organization using it. We use it for internal projects to learn the ropes, then the long term goal is to assist customers in a consultant role to improve business processes. In the current state, the product has a lot of bugs, and does not really solve any business problems. We are using the Apache Hadoop integration towards Watson Analytics Engine and hive tables on the IBM cloud object storage.
  • Intuitive interface, to allow anyone to participate.
  • Can use low level coding to improve performance and efficiency.
  • Integration towards other watson products.
  • Does not seem industry ready, a lot of integration bugs/problems.
  • Lack of clear and complete documentation of integration's within own organization.
  • Hard to maintain big projects (classes in python files etc).
  • Had a customer that started with DsX and BigInsight but then had to change both services (names changed), so we lost that customer.
When a team of hardcore coders and BI people need to work together, then IBM Watson Studio is an ok fit. Visualize data and sharing of notebooks between people at different levels.
