Documentation Issues - Cloud Pak for Data (#MLOps_AOT)

With this idea we want to point to the documentation issues we have encountered on various Cloud Pak for Data services.

1-Documentation / Explanation of deployment space concept (WML)

Deployment spaces are not exactly explained. How to use them, how to describe them, how to make an environment split with deployment spaces can be explained more clearly.

2-Documentation in ML Lifecycle Tracker and Watson OpenScale

ML Lifecycle Tracker and Watson OpenScale are documented separately, but when using them, it becomes clear they are highly interconnected. This can be depicted more clearly in the documentation.

Furthermore, how to use OpenScale can be more detailed. Limited documentation of OpenScale (Batch predictions). 


3-External APIs / CLIs examples for whole MLOps lifecycle

CPDCTL appears on multiple areas. The taxonomy of cpdctl, cpd-cli can be more clearly explained.

Examples with Travis CI/Tekton and Jenkins should be available.

Solution suggestion: Collaboration between AOT-MLOps Team and Product Teams to improve documentation.
