"Doherty believes that IBM will be able to open up Watson's capabilities to all types of businesses and consumers by offering Watson on a kind of "time share." Got a question for Watson? Let IBM know, and for $100 per minute of use, they'll give you the answer."

So they plan on using Watson like they used mainframe computers in the past.

Compared with the totality of knowledge which is continually utilized in the evolution of a dynamic civilization, the difference between the knowledge that the wisest and that which the most ignorant individual can deliberately employ is comparatively insignificant. ~Fredrich Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty
