IBM Watson Mobile Development Challenge and Motorola Solutions App Development

Think you have what it takes to develop the next killer Enterprise mobile app powered by IBM’s Watson? So do we! As part of our strategic alliance, Motorola Solutions is teaming up with IBM in support of the Watson Mobile Developer Challenge.  We believe the power of Watson is a perfect complement to our Android mobile computers and your enterprise-grade mobile applications.


That’s why we’re willing help you show the world how your Watson-powered app and our Android mobile devices are going to change everything.  We’ll help promote your participation in this program and you’ll be eligible for an additional investment of Market Development funds.


How It Works

Motorola Partner Empower members can apply just by participating in the Watson Mobile Challenge and sharing your story with us.  Motorola Solutions will promote our partners participating in this challenge along their journey and prioritize additional investments for the top submissions.


To join the Watson Mobile Development Challenge, submit a proposal to IBM by March 31st, detailing your great idea for a Watson-powered mobile app. IBM will select 25 semi-finalists, who then get full access to the Watson API and sandbox to build a prototype. Five finalists pitch their concepts to a panel of IBM judges. Three winners then get IBM mentoring support and develop their Watson-powered apps.


(For details on where to submit your proposal, visit the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge site.)


Next send us an email to let us know you’re participating in the challenge and how you plan to leverage Motorola Solutions technology.


Not quite ready to take the challenge?  That’s okay too.  Tell us your story and we’ll share it with our IBM Alliance team to get you access to the experts at IBM and access to their Watson innovation center.
