Getting started with AT&T IoT Data Plans on Bluemix

Last year we announced our IoT partnership with IBM to bring our IoT Platform capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. Our goal is to make it easy to launch IoT apps quickly, reliably, and at scale. We have previously introduced the AT&T M2X Data Service and the AT&T Flow Designer tool to Bluemix, and now we are launching IoT Data Plans: enterprise-grade SIMs that share a pool of prepaid data at low rates. This blog post shows you how to get started with AT&T’s IoT Data Plans on the Bluemix platform.

Navigation design changes in Bluemix docs help you discover what you need

With this navigation update, we think you'll understand how content is organized throughout our docs better, and will be able to find relevant content more efficiently. With fewer nested layers of content, you won't have to dig around to find the documentation you need to be successful with Bluemix.

IBM Watson’s Tone Analyzer Service Aims to Disrupt Customer Engagement

A new Beta feature launched today within the IBM Watson Tone Analyzer Service. Now you can analyze your customer support conversations with the new Tone Analyzer for Customer Engagement Endpoint. Escalate customer conversations when they turn sour, or find opportunities to improve customer service scripts, dialog strategies, and customer journeys.

Tone Analyzer for Customer Engagement: 7 new tones to help you understand how your customers are feeling

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Tone Analyzer endpoint trained for Customer Engagement scenarios. The new endpoint was trained on customer support conversations on twitter, and the tones included are frustrated, sad, satisfied, excited, polite, impolite and sympathetic. Currently, the new endpoint is Beta functionality in the IBM Watson Tone Analyzer service. Given a textual conversation between a customer and an agent or company representative, the service detects the above mentioned tones both from the customer’s and the agent’s text.

Bluemix support news — MQ Light Retirement

We’d like to inform you that we will be announcing the retirement of the MQ Light Service from Sydney on April 18, 2017. We encourage users to migrate to Message Hub on Bluemix, which includes the MQ Light API, and Kafka APIs. Message Hub is designed to be a natural progression from the MQ Light service. By moving to Message Hub, users will benefit from lower costs and elastic scalability, as well as tight integration with Bluemix services, including analytics engines, and on premises IBM MQ.
