IBM Watson Ecosystem Opens for Business in India

IBM has announced InspireOne Technologies and TEXTIENT as the two India based partners to join the IBM Watson Ecosystem. The companies will begin developing cognitive computing solutions in the region.

InspireOne Technologies is using IBM Watson cognitive APIs in its app development and TEXTIENT is a marketing insights platform tapping Watson to develop real-time brand perception reports.

“The creativity and passion of Indian businesses to introduce cognitive-infused apps to the market is overwhelming, and the region is poised for incredible growth,” said Stephen Gold, vice president for IBM Watson. “As the first Indian partners to join the Watson Ecosystem, InspireOne Technologies and TEXTIENT are excellent examples of how cognitive technology will help transform the region and the world.”

InspireOne Technologies is a professional development organization that is embedding Watson in its Supernova application to empower employees to develop their leadership capabilities. Supernova uses Watson’s Sentiment Analysis and Natural Language Classifier APIs to analyze corporate emails, enabling Supernova to deliver evidence-based insights so managers can refine their own leadership capabilities and areas for development.

TEXTIENT is a SaaS platform for brand, marketing and customer insights. It allows marketers to quickly gain strategic and actionable insights from social media posts about the impact of a marketing action or the competitive differentiation of their brand.

TEXTIENT uses Watson’s Personality Insights API along with sentiment analysis, entity extraction, and concept extraction to automatically generate a comprehensive Brand-Essence Report in a matter of minutes.

IBM also expanded within the Indian health sector late last year by announcing Manipal Hospital in Bangalore, as the first client in India to deploy Watson.

The Watson ecosystem with an advanced and diverse cognitive computing platform, now represents more than 500 ecosystem partners across 17 industries and disciplines, claims the company.
