    Are the services available in ICP4Data similar/identical to Watson Studio?  Response to a previous question says they are complementary.  What would drive a customer choose between ICP4Data vs Watson Studio - is it just private cloud vs public cloud or are there other factors to consider such as maturity of the tools, IBM's strategic direction etc.

    Hi Ramesh,
    IBM Cloud Private for Data inter-operates with  IBM Watson Studio – giving you great flexibility and choice for your data and AI workloads. Here are a couple use scenarios:

    • Prepare data once and access anywhere 
    • Create enterprise data catalogs on enterprise data, imported into IBM Watson Studio and vice-versa
    • Easily share machine  learning metadata across the enterprise, and on-premises and  public clouds Build once and run anywhere
    • Create and train machine learning  models behind firewall on enterprise data, deploy them to IBM Watson Studio Use IBM Watson Studio for creating resource intensive deep learning models and deploy them on ICP for Data Ensure secure data  inter-operability
    • Securely access & share data dynamically, migrating data quickly and seamlessly between on-premises and cloud

    Hi Ramesh, I re-read your question. Here is the main distinction: ICP for Data is complementary with similar services to Watson Data Platform. ICP for Data is behind the firewall with build in cloud native, micro service architecture. Whereas Watson Data Platform is solely on the public cloud. Interoperability of meta data, ML models can be easily ported back and forth based on customers needs.
