Deprecation of Functionality
Confidence Model Scoring for Boolean and Categorical Goals
In ThingWorx Analytics Server 8.5, confidence models for Boolean and categorical goals could be created during training. When these confidence models are scored, the scoring output includes confidence interval information along with the prediction results. In a future release, the confidence interval information will no longer be returned as part of the scoring results for confidence models created in Analytics Server 8.5 with Boolean or categorical goals. In preparation for future upgrades, you should update any application code that is related to scoring these types of models. Ensure that your application code does not rely on the confidence interval results.
End of Life Information
ThingWatcher was discontinued as a standalone SDK in 8.3. However, ThingWatcher functionality is available in the Anomaly Detection features native to the ThingWorx platform. For more information, see Anomaly Detection.
ThingPredictor software media is no longer available for download as of 8.3. However, support will continue for 8.x users until the next major release. To replace ThingPredictor capabilities, an improved set of predictive services is being introduced in 8.3. For more information, see Predictive Scoring Using the Analytics Server Connector.
DataConnect / Data Analytics Definition
DataConnect and the Data Analytics Definition are not available as of 8.3. Replacement functionality will be introduced in a future release.
