World of Watson is Canceled | PMsquare Brief


World of Watson is Canceled

Last month IBM announced that World of Watson is canceled.  This event, which is IBM’s premier analytics and cognitive solutions conference of the year, will be moved to the spring of 2018.  The move will also combine World of Watson with other IBM events.  This change aligns with IBM’s ongoing efforts to integrate the content and solutions at conferences.  As readers recall, 2016 marked the first year that IBM merged the Insight conference with the Watson conference to form World of Watson.  This announcement is the next step in that direction.
