Overview

Top rule

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 License Information (LI) document is included for required enablement software and works with the IBM Cloud™ to provide user management features, product updates, and automatic subscription verification.

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.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
