Cloud-based Data Science Experience to accelerate production

Share this post:

DataScienceIn an announcement that coincided with the Spark Summit in San Francisco, IBM unveiled a new Data Science Experience integrated development environment last week.

The cloud-based environment uses what IBM Analytics Product Development VP Rob Thomas calls the “analytics operating system” of Apache Spark to help data scientists collaborate with one another to ultimately get applications into production faster. The Data Science Experience is the first enterprise app for Apache Spark.

The development environment includes numerous tools, such as RStudio, Python, libraries, and Notebooks, which enables developers to use the tools with which they feel most comfortable while collaborators work with the tools they like most. “You can collaborate and share datasets and collaborate and share models, and it doesn’t require you to know the other languages,” Thomas said.

The Data Science Experience also includes capabilities from the IBM Data Scientist workbench, which enables connections with various data sources.
