How cognitive business operations can elevate your business

Share this post:

cognitive business operations InterconnectEvery business operates with the aim to serve its customers as best as possible. Here are just a few examples of how businesses use the cloud to elevate service:

  • A small retail store uses cloud software to manage its inventory, finances and ordering processes
  • A large healthcare provider combines private health data with publicly-available scientific studies to provide better patient care
  • A medium-sized bank leverages automated processes and rules to onboard new customers more quickly

What if all this could be done even better?

Traditional business operations are being transformed by new capabilities that infuse humanlike understanding into the very fabric of business. The retail store and its order process can now leverage cognitive services to convert speech-to-text and perform trade-off analysis. The healthcare provider could analyze images and extract relationships to tailor treatment to its individual patients. The bank can determine sentiment and automate natural language conversations to ensure quick and accurate service.

You can now infuse operational systems with cognitive services to take action at the right time. This level of innovation and efficiency was not previously possible.

Patterns combine cognitive and process transformation

Cognitive business operations, powered by IBM Watson, is the next step. Businesses need to innovate while also maintaining their existing systems. This hybrid model is ideal for process and decision management. Companies can deliver excellent service through efficiency, effectiveness and visibility. What if you added the ability to sense new, unstructured events in real time? What if you could correlate across time, space and individual customer? Your engagement could leap ahead.
