IBM Watson Assistant is the conversational AI service on the IBM Cloud that can be used to create chatbots or assistants. As the SAP Cloud Platform offers a Node.js runtime I thought why not try out an existing tutorial on SCP.
If you are a SAP developer and want to familarize yourself with the Watson Assistant service and Node.js you can check out this repo. It has a simple and rather technical front-end that shows you what Watson understands.
To understand or modify the dialog – including available intents and entities – you’d need to launch the Watson Assistant service.
More advanced use cases are possible, e.g. a Fiori frontend or programatic calls of external systems via webhooks. If you want to use ABAP instead you should have a look at this blog (runs on on-prem SAP systems, however, at the time of writing).
