On September 27th, the IBM DataWorks service became IBM Bluemix Data Connect.
The name change is part of the strategic announcement to make data simple and accessible to all. Data Connect is a key component of this strategy as it delivers self-service data preparation and integration capabilities to business analysts, data engineers and data scientists alike. Data Connect empowers all to turn raw data into actionable insights.
For our existing users, we want to reassure you this is a non-disruptive change that has a very small impact to your day to day operations. Anywhere you were used to see IBM DataWorks you will now see IBM Bluemix Data Connect or Data Connect for short. Your existing service instances will continue to work without change and existing assets you created with the service will work just like they did prior to the name change. This includes any applications that use the Data Connect API as it remains unchanged to guarantee no impact to existing users of the service.
