"As part of its effort to equip all professionals with the tools needed to do their jobs better, Watson Analytics provides business professionals with a unified experience and natural language dialogue so they can better understand data and more quickly reach business goals," the company said.

Offered as a cloud-based freemium service, all business users can now access Watson Analytics from any desktop or mobile device, IBM said.

Since being announced on September 16, more than 22,000 people have already registered for the beta, claimed the company. The Watson Analytics Community, a user group for sharing news, best practices, technical support and training, is also accessible now.

The launch of Watson Analytics follows the announcement two months ago that IBM has teamed up with Twitter to apply the Watson technology to analysing data from the social network.
