Business Challenge

Cognition Foundry uses the latest technology to help startups solve some very big problems and big challenges. It needed solutions that provide security and scalability, while keeping operational costs down.


Cognition Foundry specializes in using the latest technology to help startups—particularly those with a strong focus on social impact—change the world. When startup Plastic Bank had the vision to pay people in the developing world to clean up ocean pollution, Cognition Foundry knew that IBM Blockchain technology was the ideal solution to ensure the safety of individuals’ digital payments, while creating a high level of trust for large companies participating in the program. What makes the system even more secure is the fact that Cognition Foundry chose to run it on the IBM LinuxONE cloud platform.
