IBM's Watson AI now available on any cloud: 3 notes

IBM Opens Watson AI Services to Third Party Cloud Platforms

IBM frees Watson AI to work on any cloud

Customers interested in taking advantage of the Watson "Anywhere" service will be able to connect data stored in any of those clouds or in private data centres to Watson through IBM Cloud Private for Data, which already runs on multiple clouds. "The challenge in this environment is to overcome data and technology siloes to quickly deploy new business services and applications with security".

Through the IBM Cloud catalog, IBM says, it is helping to make processes easier for enterprise developers by offering them access to security and resiliency capabilities to modernize their applications in the IBM Cloud.

Assistant and OpenScale are available immediately across technologies such as on-premises clouds, or any private, public, hybrid or multiple-cloud environment.

Hyundai Card Commercial announced that they are working with IBM to advance their use of cloud-based AI and blockchain technology with the aim to improve consumer experience and expand their financial services business globally.

For IBM Watson, services including Watson Assistant and Watson OpenScale can now run on any cloud - on premises, or any private, public or hybrid-multicloud.

IBM on Tuesday said it had made Watson portable across any Cloud and empowered businesses to prevent vendor lock-in and start deploying AI wherever their data resides. "But a new-found confidence is emerging as more banks move to adopting hybrid cloud solutions..., the secret sauce to rapid innovation". IBM said with Watson, customers will be able to apply AI to data wherever it is hosted and with its set of applications, development tools, machine-learning models and management services.

Vancouver-area child diagnosed with measles -- but total stays at 58
Clark County Public Health has been regularly updating its list of locations where people may have been exposed to measles. All but two of the patients are children ages 18 and younger, and 47 of those infected with measles are unimmunized.

"It underscores that IBM is willing to play in a multivendor world (rather than promoting IBM IaaS as the technology underpinning ICP and solutions atop it), it can help bring IBM to the table more often in enterprise and midmarket organizations now that it is "playing nice" more often with peers, and it addresses a fundamental pain point that IT departments are facing, linking on-prem apps and data to cloud apps and data such that processes can become more efficient and customers can get the most business value", Mooshian, said.

Rometty revealed that Big Blue now had over 20,000 engagements with AI, with customer service being the most popular use case, followed by human resources (HR).

There's no doubt, IBM is a leader in AI software, services, and the technology for business.

IBM also launched new hybrid cloud tools and services to help enterprises navigate the complexities around cloud.

This includes the general availability of Hyper Protect Crypto Services planned for March 2019 which provides businesses with encryption key management service with a dedicated cloud hardware security module (HSM) built on FIPS 140-2 level 4-based technology with certification now in progress.
