2Watson Goes to Developers
3The Watson Cloud
IBM will be launching the IBM Watson Developers Cloud, a cloud-hosted marketplace where application providers of all sizes and industries will be able to tap into resources for developing Watson-powered apps. This will include a developer toolkit, educational materials and access to Watson’s application programming interface (API).
4The Watson Store
IBM will offer a platform for testing, training and deploying Watson-powered apps to help application providers prepare their cognitive apps for success in the marketplace. Once the app is refined and ready, app providers, ranging from startups to established businesses, can market their apps to business customers and consumers.
