Use case: Cutting IT support costs
• Different groups of data scientists are using different versions of different tools on their PCs.
• Auditing software versions and licensing across dozens of machines is time-consuming for the IT team.
• Patching and upgrading tools across the whole estate is labor-intensive, and incompatibility issues prevent data scientists from working productively.
IBM Watson Studio Desktop acts as a single platform of pre-integrated components installed as a single application on Mac and Windows operating systems. While open enough to allow data scientists to choose their preferred languages, libraries and frameworks, it provides a focused set of integrated solutions, avoiding the fragmentation that occurs when data science teams can each choose different tools.
With its flat monthly fee per user, IBM Watson Studio Desktop simplifies license checking and auditing across the entire estate of desktops for improved efficiency.
