We’d like to inform you that we will be retiring the AlchemyAPI service on Bluemix. The two main capabilities within AlchemyAPI are AlchemyData News and AlchemyLanguage.
AlchemyData News offers enriched news and blog content that can be queried for highly targeted search and trend analysis. This capability is now available with the Watson Discovery Service. Watson Discoveryoffers a pre-enriched news source similar to AlchemyData News and also enables users to combine public and private data for unstructured content analysis.
Both services offer simpler and less expensive pricing options.
Here’s what you need to know:
End of Marketing Date: April 7, 2017
As of April 7, 2017, the AlchemyAPI tile will be removed from the Bluemix catalog and you will no longer be able to provision new AlchemyAPI instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.
End of Support Date: March 7, 2018
For a period of 334 days after the End of Marketing Date, through March 7, 2018, all existing instances will continue to be available on the services dashboard in the Bluemix console. All existing instances will continue to be supported by AlchemyAPI.
Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted.
