Forrester Research just released “The Forrester Wave™: AI Decisioning Platforms, Q2 2023: The 13 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up” by Mike Gualtieri with Aaron Katz, Catherine Marcin, and Jen Barton, and IBM is proud to be recognized as a Leader. 

This report outlines the combination of traditional decision automation tools with machine learning models and other technologies. As Forrester notes in the report, many organizations are eager to harness the power of AI but also must be cautious of risks. “What these enterprises need,” the report states, “is a platform that can simultaneously enable them to harness the power of AI while enhancing and governing it with well-proven and trusted human business expertise.”

The new Forrester Wave™ report details how IBM compares with other vendors in the AI-decisioning landscape based on current offering, strategy and market presence scores.  

IBM named a Leader

We at IBM continue to be excited about the intersection of decision automation with AI, which is also referred to as decision intelligence. We are pleased that IBM has been named as a Leader in the Forrester Wave. We received the highest score in the “Current offering” category on the scorecard, the highest possible scores in the authoring, applications, and supporting products and services criteria, and the highest market presence score among all evaluated vendors.
