Cognitive Advantage

Driving real business outcomes with cognitive technology solutions

We’ve anticipated it for years, and now it’s becoming reality: Emerging technologies are finally able to emulate and augment the power of the human brain. That has big implications for the business world, which is still coming to terms with the opportunities presented by the enormous amount of data pulsing through markets, individual businesses, and more. Conventional technology is not up to the task of extracting the full value of this mountain of data. But the promise of cognitive technology solutions is clear.

Why now?

The dawn of the cognitive era creates newer, and in many cases bigger, opportunities for businesses to generate value from their data, in tandem with analytics advances. Imagine helping your workers take an “amplified intelligence” approach that combines their own insights with machine-generated insights to focus on what matters most: Improving core operations, building new assets, and enabling better outcomes for your organization and its customers. That’s the cognitive advantage. And with big advances in cognitive capabilities, it’s finally within reach.

Time to move: From interest to adoption of cognitive technology

When it comes to adoption of cognitive technology, some of the leading companies are progressing rapidly from the pilot project phase to the production application phase. Those on the sidelines would do well to move from interest to adoption of this impressive group of technologies.

Data's big leap

Cognitive technologies use statistical models that constantly improve as the system “learns” and extract more relevant, timely, and granular insights from massive pools of data. Don’t think of cognitive technologies as “smart machines,” they’re machines that–when skillfully deployed–can make people and organizations smarter and produce stronger outcomes. See how this technology will advance crucial business practices across industries.
