Understanding the cognitive building

Your buildings create an enormous amount of unstructured data. Cognitive computing lets you use that data to make informed decisions about how to optimize the experience of occupants, staff and management. IBM Watson IoT™ can tap new sources of data — helping you adapt your space to changing needs.

Watson IoT for buildings is a complete solution that helps you:

Capture data from sensors and devices.

Consolidate that information on a single cloud platform.

Generate recommendations that can be operationalized by your asset and facilities management software.
