Analytics and cognitive computing are becoming increasingly important components of digital operations

The use of digital and cognitive technologies and solutions are rapidly gaining ground in many industries.

It’s being used to change the way we think and execute our business models and the way that we operate in our daily execution. IBM Institute for Business Value last week publish a study that showed the link between high growth / high profit and the early adaptation of the emerging cognitive technologies.

The highest performers are those enterprises, that are exploiting the new technologies. Some of the data points are brought forward in the attached and would in general apply to any industry at some level, including our own IT Industry, where especially the use of cognitive solutions will change the way IT systems are managed over the next years.

We will move from ‘reacting’ to incidents to ‘proactively’ avoiding incident and from ‘Technology assisted / people led’  to ‘Technology led / people assisted’ as cognitive technologies find their way into to our daily operational environment.
