02-10-2015: IBM Analytics - Watson Everywhere

IBM, the vendor behemoth best known for its large systems software and services, wants enterprises to know that it is fully embracing the new state of computing. To that end, the company has been working to advance its analytics offerings with comprehensive cognitive computing capabilities that tie into its on-premises and cloud-based Watson engine across and embedded into numerous of its products. Additionally, IBM is marrying Watson’s structured and unstructured analytical and recommendation capabilities to a host of third-party data streams and non-IBM database, processing engines, and delivering application programming interfaces (APIs) wherever possible to provide users with both choice and portability.
