IDC PeerScape: Practices for Cognitive Systems Initiatives
This PeerScape presents five critical practices that can help organizations start using cognitive systems. Cognitively enabled solutions are the next evolution in analyzing structured and unstructured data. Cognitive platforms are offering innovators the ability to build new products and services that would have been previously impossible without large resources.Although many of the examples presented in this document come from organizations outside of North America, the practices herein will be relevant to any organizations that are seeking to adopt cognitive systems technologies. By adopting some or all of these practices, both IT and LOB managers will help ensure their cognitive systems investment is optimized.“The barriers of artificial intelligence, machine, and deep learning are rapidly dropping. As such, cognitive systems will soon be powering data-driven applications across a wide spectrum of solutions. This new generation of tools and capabilities is capable of offering intelligent assistance, advice, and recommendations to end users, thus enhancing their competitive edge or supplementing information for better decision making,” said Chwee Chua, AVP, Big Data and Analytics and Cognitive Computing, IDC Asia/Pacific.
