IBM Watson Studio Desktop

IBM Watson® Studio Desktop Subscription, previously known as IBM® SPSS® Modeler Subscription, brings the most popular portions of Watson™ Studio on the cloud to your Microsoft™ Windows™ or Apple Mac machine for offline use. This new addition to the Watson Studio family scales from an individual user all the way up to a large team. It helps you analyse data files you don’t want to upload and can help improve performance. It is all made possible with a fast and easy desktop installation as a cloud subscription service with unlimited use for a monthly fee per authorized user. The main features of Watson Studio Desktop Subscription are a SPSS Modeler canvas together with a data refinery spreadsheet editor that provides backward compatibility with IBM SPSS Modeler streams. Watson Studio Desktop Subscription is designed to provide:

♦ Data preparation, blending, and modeling without additional coding.

♦ Improved productivity using a locally installed client.

♦ The ability to use the program offline. Watson Studio Desktop Subscription works without an internet connection for weeks at a time.

♦ The ability to keep all of your data on your machine. The offering adheres to the security and governance mandates with your data.

♦ Unlimited modeling without overages. Using Watson Studio – Desktop Subscription, you can develop models without any incremental cost. You can build models iteratively on your desktop, then move them to Watson Studio on the cloud to deploy.

♦ As a single Watson Studio environment, no additional learning is required. With the same design for the cloud and desktop versions, switching between deployment options is seamless with no unique training.
