What about the new Watson 3U setup is more than a turn key Apache UIMA install? Seems like in all of this they gloss over how there is no free lunch and you still have to write a lot of services for your problem domain.

Apache UIMA can just do the data import & transformation.

Watson is much, much more. For one thing UIMA doesn't have any of the question analysis and answer confidence rating that the Watson DeepQA pipeline[1] does.
