Tradeoff Analytics Retirement

Share this post:

We’d like to inform you that we will be retiring the Tradeoff Analytics service on Bluemix.

Here’s what you need to know:

End of Marketing Date: May 11, 2017

As of May 11, 2017, the Tradeoff Analytics tile will be removed from the Bluemix catalog and you will no longer be able to provision new Tradeoff Analytics instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported.

End of Support Date: April 11, 2018

  • For a period of 334 days after the End of Marketing Date, through April 11, 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 Tradeoff Analytics.
  • Any instance still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted.
  • Please note the US South, Sydney and United Kingdom regions will be affected by this service update.

Hi Sophia,

will the functionality that was provided by the Tradeoff Analytics service be available some other way?

We built an important part of our application using this service. What are supposed to do after April 2018?


Sebastien Bodart

Is an other service going to fill in the role of Tradeoff Analytics?

As TradeOff is deprecated, is there any alternate Watson API to be released soon? What is the plan for existing TradeOff users?

Jeff Chesnutt

Hi, sad to see Trade-off analytics go! Any word on whether there will be a replacement?


Is there a suggested replacement product?

Erik Andersen

Is there any plan to replace it by other service?

Alyssa Simpson

Thank you for your comments. We will be reaching out to all existing users of Tradeoff Analytics with additional documentation containing information and migration options in the next few weeks to use several other technologies.

    Thank you for your information!
    I’m working in a customer that is exciting to use this service (Tradeoff).
