Watson Technical Aspects and Features

Watson Technical Aspects

IBM Watson Explorer is a platform for the development and deployment of enterprise information navigation and search applications, 360-degree view applications, and content mining applications.

The foundational components provide federated discovery, navigation, and search over a broad range of data sources and types. The software includes a framework for developing information-rich applications that deliver a comprehensive, contextually-relevant, 360-degree view of any topic for business users, data scientists, and a variety of targeted business functions.

The analytical components, which are provided in Watson Explorer Advanced Edition, help analysts transform information into insights through visualizations that reveal trends, patterns, anomalies, and relationships. The analytical components also enable custom and domain-specific text analytics, which can enhance 360-degree view and content mining applications.
