Abstract

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 to analyze 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.

Benefits of Watson Studio Desktop Subscription include:

  • 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. Want to build a model on a plane without wifi?
  • 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. This allows you to 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.

Text Analytics

Watson Studio Desktop Subscription component helps data scientists and analysts to convert unstructured text data into structured data or groupings for further analysis. The software combines linguistics, predeveloped concepts/categories, and an extensive customization capability that helps end users to obtain an analysis that is suitable for their data and business cases.

Around 80% of data held within an organization is in the form of text documents; for example, reports, web pages, emails, and call center notes. Text is a key factor in enabling an organization to gain a better understanding of their customers' behavior. A system that incorporates NLP can intelligently extract concepts, including compound phrases. Moreover, knowledge of the underlying language allows classification of terms into related groups, such as products, organizations, or people, using meaning and context. As a result, by using Watson Studio Desktop Subscription, you can quickly determine the relevance of the information to your needs. These extracted concepts and categories can be combined with existing structured data, such as demographics, and applied to modeling in SPSS Modeler's full suite of data science tools to yield better and core-focused decisions.
