The new Standard plan for IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog

We’re excited to announce that as of September 28, 2018, we are introducing a standard plan for IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog and updating the existing Lite plan to open up capabilities, including data governance features across all plans.

Watson Knowledge Catalog powers the intelligent, self-service discovery of data, models, and more for analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning. You can access, curate, categorize, and share data, knowledge assets, and their relationships wherever they reside.

What’s changing?

Watson Knowledge Catalog is currently available in a no-cost Lite plan. It is also available in the Professional plan, which is an enterprise version with additional capabilities and entitlements. The middle-tier Standard plan builds on the Lite plan and lets you catalog your data, discover new data sources, and offer your knowledge workers, business analysts, and data scientists a true shop-for-data experience.

The Standard plan includes business glossary terms, governance policies, data lineage, and integration with the IBM InfoSphere Information Governance Catalog. The integration allows clients to seamlessly sync their metadata between Watson Knowledge Catalog and the Information Governance Catalog. Also included is a generous amount of capacity unit hours to process data preparation flows and profiling activities.

The Lite plan updates include governance features and usage limits. These changes allow Lite plan users to test drive advanced capabilities that previously were only available in the paid plans.

The Professional plan continues to offer a broad set of capabilities and entitlements in Watson Knowledge Catalog. There is no change in pricing for the professional plan.

What are the differences between the Lite, Standard, and Professional plans?

Watson Knowledge Catalog offers various plans to fit the needs of your team or organization.

All prices are in USD. For most up-to-date pricing details, visit the Knowledge Catalog pricing page.

When do changes take effect?

The Standard plan and updated Lite plan become available on September 28, 2018.

If you already have the Lite plan, updates will occur automatically. Your existing assets and catalog users will remain unchanged. However, if you have exceeded the user and asset limits, you won’t be able to add more users or assets. In that case, you can remove users and assets until you are below the usage limits, or you can upgrade to the standard or professional plan.

How do I change or upgrade my plan?

You can change or upgrade your plan through your IBM Cloud Dashboard. Click on your existing Watson Knowledge Catalog service, then go to the Plan tab and select a new plan.
