Mendix Invited to Present at IBM’s Flagship World of Watson Event in Las Vegas
Attendees will discover how to harness the power of Watson cognitive services to build and deploy intelligent, context-aware and proactive business apps using Mendix
BOSTON – October 19, 2016 – Mendix, the fastest and easiest platform for Rapid Application Development, has been invited to present at the IBM World of Watson conference on the topic of building Smart Apps. The session, “Unleashing Digital Innovation: How Anyone Can Build Smart Experiences Using Watson Services,” is scheduled for Monday, October 24th at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
“There’s unmet potential for IT teams to leverage cognitive services to deliver new products, customer experiences and operational efficiencies,” said Johan den Haan, CTO at Mendix. “The challenge is that utilizing intelligent APIs in the context of business processes is complex and requires scarce skills. During the session, we will share how Mendix’s rapid application development approach democratizes cognitive science, enabling developers of any skill level to use Watson services in building Smart Apps.”
The session will cover:
- How cognitive services enable business applications to be intelligent, context-aware and proactive
- How Erie Insurance built an application with Mendix that uses Watson AI to reduce the learning curve for new underwriters and to enable senior personnel to focus on higher-impact activities
- A live demo to show how to integrate the IBM Text to Speech service into an app in less than three minutes
Mendix is the only low-code development platform that runs on IBM Bluemix and provides out-of-the-box connectors to IBM Watson Services. Without writing any code, developers can seamlessly leverage Watson services (e.g. AlchemyVision, Concept Insights, Text to Speech, Visual Recognition and Dialog) in their applications simply by dragging and dropping objects in the Mendix platform. In addition, Mendix enables one-click deployment to any IBM Bluemix environment (public, dedicated, local and hybrid) for enterprise-grade application deployment and operations.
