Completion of Entity Analytics Beta within Bluemix Data Connect

Share this post:

The Entity Analytics beta capability of Bluemix Data Connect will be switched off on Friday 14th April. This applies only to the Entity Analytics operation (Match & Manage) and graph visualization components of Bluemix Data Connect. The rest of Bluemix Data Connect is unaffected.

During the beta program we gained a lot of useful feedback as to how these Entity components provides an important set of features to power self service analytics.

We will be delving into this feedback to determine how we can best deliver industry leading Entity capabilities in the future.

Thanks to all of those who used the component and especially to those of you who took the time to share their feedback with us.
