It hardly feels like a month since my last post about what we shipped in January, but the team has been really busy. Watson Content Hub already had a powerful authoring interface with built-in Watson features. Now the enhancements to the publishing system complete the headless CMS.
This means that for mobile apps or IOT uses, WCH is a great choice to build your customer experience. If you’re building web apps to access content, now you can host those on Watson Content Hub. Our publishing system with integrated Akamai CDN means that you’ll have fast delivery world-wide. The delivery search service brings the power of a Solr-based search to your apps.

Of course we have a lot more planned for Watson Content Hub and we expect to keep up the pace in the months to come. Here’s the list – and please do get in touch with me at email@example.com if you have any comments or feedback.
- Content Publishing – this goes with asset publishing, which is already available. When content items are marked Ready, Watson Content Hub will copy them to the integrated CDN where they are cached. Your app can then access the content with fast WW delivery, thanks to the CDN. Read more about this in here.
- Delivery Search – to help your app find the right content, we have created Delivery Search. This powerful Solr-based API enables applications to search for published content and assets. This allows you to create a more dynamic user experience. Read more about this in here.
- Web App Hosting – For simple static apps it’s a lot of hassle to get a web server. Now, thanks to our Web App Hosting capability you don’t need to do that. Your developers can upload their HTMl, CSS and JS assets and serve them from our integrated CDN. Here’s a how-to guide for this capability.
- Bulk Delete APIs – delete assets and content in bulk, via the APIs.
- Cognitive Tagging on API upload – assets uploaded via the APIs or command line tooling now triggers Watson services to analyze and tag the asset.
- Increase Max Asset Size – As the platform beds in, we’re ready to increase the maximum asset size. This is now 250Mb, though you can set a lower limit in the hub settings if desired.
- Fixes and Infrastructure enhancements – As usual, we have ongoing behind-the-scenes enhancements and fixes to improve the service.
