    Today's businesses, applications, social media, and online transactions generate more data than ever before. This data can be explored and analyzed to provide tremendous business value. IBM® Watson™ Explorer and IBM InfoSphere® Master Data Management (InfoSphere MDM) enable organizations to simultaneously explore and derive insights from enterprise data that was traditionally stored in "silos" in enterprise applications, different data repositories, and in different data formats.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication provides information about Watson Explorer 9.0, InfoSphere MDM, and IBM InfoSphere MDM Probabilistic Matching Engine for InfoSphere BigInsights™ (PME for BigInsights). It gives you an overview, describes the architecture, and presents use cases that you can use to accomplish the following tasks:

    • Understand the core capabilities of Watson Explorer, InfoSphere MDM, and PME for BigInsights.
    • Realize the full potential of Watson Explorer applications.
    • Describe the integration and value of the combination of Watson Explorer and InfoSphere MDM.
    • Build a 360-degree information application.
    • Learn by example by following hands-on lab scenarios.
