IBM watsonx.governance offering plan options

The watsonx.governance service enables responsible, transparent, and explainable AI.

The available plans depend on the region where you are provisioning the service from the IBM Cloud catalog.

  • In the Dallas region, provision a watsonx.governance plan. If you provision watsonx.ai in Dallas, watsonx.governance is provisioned as well.
  • In the Frankfurt region, provision an Watson OpenScale plan.
  • Watsonx.governance plans are not available in the Tokyo region.

IBM watsonx.governance plans (Dallas only)

Watsonx.governance offers a free Lite plan and a paid Essentials plan.

With watsonx.governance you can:

  • Evaluate machine learning models for dimensions such as fairness, quality, or drift.
  • Define AI use cases in a collaborative, open way to define a business problem and track the solution.
  • Capture the details for machine learning models, in each stage of their lifecycle, and store the data in factsheets within an associated AI use case.
  • Maintain collections of AI uses cases in inventories, where you can manage access.

For Large Language Models in watsonx.ai, you can also:

  • Evaluate prompt templates across multiple dimensions such as quality, Personally Identifable Information (PII) in prompt input and outputs, and Abuse or Profanity in Prompt input and ouput.
  • Monitor metrics for Large Language Model performance.
  • Automatically capture metadata in a Factsheet from development to deployment, for each stage in the lifecycle.

Optional integration with the Governance Console (IBM OpenPages)

Both the Lite plan and the Essentials plan support optional integration with the Governance Console. If you have installed the Model Risk Governance module of IBM OpenPages, you can configure AI use cases to sync governance facts with the Governance Console. From the Governance Console, you can view governance activities, manage tasks, and implement workflows as part of your governance and compliance processes.

Important: You can create a maximum of three AI uses cases with the Lite plan. To create additional AI use cases, upgrade your plan.

Billing rates

For the Essentials plan, billing is based on a flat rate of $0.60 per resource unit consumed. For billing details, see the IBM Cloud service page for watsonx.governance.

Monitoring resource usage

You can track RU usage for assets you own or collaborate on in a project or space. If you are an account owner or administrator, you can track resource usage for an entire account.

Tracking resource usage in a project or space

To monitor resource consumption in a project or space:

  1. Navigate to the Manage tab for a project or space.
  2. Click Resources to review a summary of resource consumption for assets in the project or space, or to review resource consumption details for particular assets.

Tracking resource usage for an account

You can track the runtime usage for an account on the Environment Runtimes page if you are the IBM Cloud account owner or administrator or the Watson Machine Learning service owner. For details, see Monitoring resource.
