Watson Workspace is coming together :: Just in time for Connect 2017

by Volker Weber

Watson Workspace

When Watson Workspace opened its preview right at Watson World last year, I was underwhelmed, to say the least. And so were other people. You looked, you saw, you went. It was revealed way too early. Progress over the last months was slow, or so it seemed. Until yesterday.

The team was hard at work and it revealed a lot of functions yesterday. Things like alerts for mentions, direct messages, a better way to discover Moments. The list goes on. While it was barely usable when it was first released, it now has become useful. Do give it another try.

If you compare Watson Workspace to Slack or HipChat, you will find it severly lacking, as far as features and functions are concerned. But it is pretty, and it is smart. With Moments Watson tries to surface what is important to you, if you haven't been looking at the chat for a while. This is nowhere near perfect, but it will learn.

The web interface has been updated, a new iOS app is out, the new Android app is coming over the weekend.

I like the new update - my only critic: it takes some seconds to load the chat.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
