Check out our latest solution tutorial that helps you analyze data and detect anomalies in the historical data.

There are many use cases that may need multiple cloud services to work hand-in-hand. One such use case is where you set up an IoT mobile device, gather the sensor data in the Watson IoT Platform, explore data and create visualizations, and then using advanced machine learning services to analyze data and detect anomalies in the historical data. 

We worked and published a solution tutorial that helps you go through such a use case in simple steps. Simply register and connect your device (be it a sensor, a gateway, or something else) to the Watson IoT Platform and start sending data securely up to the cloud using the open, lightweight MQTT messaging protocol. 

You can set up and manage your devices using your online dashboard or our secure APIs so that your apps can access and use your live and historical data.

IBM Watson Studio provides you with the environment and tools to solve your business problems by collaboratively working with data. You can choose the tools you need to analyze and visualize data, to cleanse and shape data, to ingest streaming data, or to create and train machine learning models.


  • Set up IoT Simulator to collect mobile device sensor data.
  • Send collected data to Watson IoT Platform.
  • Create visualizations with a Jupyter notebook.
  • Analyze the device-generated data and detect anomalies.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…

A clear path to value: Overcome challenges on your FinOps journey 

3 min read - In recent years, cloud adoption services have accelerated, with companies increasingly moving from traditional on-premises hosting to public cloud solutions. However, the rise of hybrid and multi-cloud patterns has led to challenges in optimizing value and controlling cloud expenditure, resulting in a shift from capital to operational expenses.   According to a Gartner report, cloud operational expenses are expected to surpass traditional IT spending, reflecting the ongoing transformation in expenditure patterns by 2025. FinOps is an evolving cloud financial management discipline…
