IDC PeerScape: Digital Transformation — Practices for Strategically Leveraging Cognitive Systems

This IDC PeerScape introduces four practices that can help business and technology executives leverage cognitive systems technologies to drive business performance. Cognitive systems are an important and powerful innovation accelerator, but they are fundamentally different from traditional enterprise technologies. This study is intended to help IT and LOB executives understand in what ways cognitive systems differ from traditional enterprise applications and technologies and how those differences can be leveraged. In addition, this study describes the specific ways that businesses are leveraging cognitive systems for competitive and other advantages."What is important is that organizations need to think differently about cognitive systems and platforms from their programmatic enterprise system counterparts," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network, "They have vastly more power and capability, with all of the risk and reward that entails."
