IBM recently introduced Watson Analytics, a natural language-based cognitive service that can provide immediate and simple access to powerful predictive and visual analytic tools for businesses. KMWorld brought this news to us in their article, “IBM announces Watson Analytics.”

Business users can gain instant access to persona-based business scenarios specific to their role. Stop wasting time searching for answers or testing hypotheses when you can focus on understanding the business and effectively communicating results to stakeholders.

Natural language processing is utilized so business users can ask the right questions and get results in terms familiar to their business, terms that can be read and understood or interacted with. The first release of Watson Analytics will include a “freemium” version of its cloud-based service designed to run on desktop and mobile devices.
