Company and government agencies continue to struggle with gaining value from their data assets. The proliferation of data silos, lack of data governance, inadequate supply of analytical skills, and incompatible tools are among the key challenges facing these organizations. In order to help address these challenges, IBM has introduced the Watson Data Platform. The Watson Data Platform consists of a set of tools, services, and data to help companies and agencies accelerate their shift to become data-driven organizations.

This session will provide an introduction to the Watson Data Platform. The presentation will showcase the Data Science Experience, an environment that brings together popular open source tools with IBM value added capabilities to support the Data Scientist.
