IBM and Anaconda have partnered to bring together Anaconda technology and IBM Cloud Pak for Data, creating Anaconda Repository for IBM Cloud Pak for Data. This is designed to help organizations automate AI lifecycles with comprehensive, managed and curated opensource libraries and tools.
IBM Cloud Pak® for Data is a fully-integrated data and AI platform that modernizes how businesses collect, organize and analyze data to infuse AI throughout their organizations. Cloud native by design, you can build, deploy and manage any model—whether it’s based on open source, IBM tools or other pre-built services in this unified, secure environment with continuous AI governance.
Anaconda Repository for IBM Cloud Pak for Data extends Cloud Pak for Data to unleash the full potential of your data science and AI initiatives. Access more than 7,500 open-source packages (Conda-Forge, CRAN, PyPI) from your central enterprise repository and add your own proprietary packages. Get Conda package updates in real time, as they are released.
With Anaconda Repository for IBM Cloud Pak for Data, you can easily put open-source and proprietary packages in the hands of your team so they can be productive and efficient, while maintaining control of the project and having the peace of mind of knowing the who, what, when, and where of packages and artifacts in your environment.
And as part of this new partnership, Anaconda’s community of 20 million users is now able to access a no-charge lite plan of Watson Studio, offering the opportunity to manage their data science projects within IBM’s enterprise-grade environment.
Without the proper management tools in place, open-source packages are often used outside security policies. With Anaconda Team Edition integrated within IBM Cloud Pak for Data, you can easily put open-source and proprietary packages in the hands of your team with strong governance and security.
