Overcome the challenges of the Internet of Things so you can capitalize on its potential

IoT is vast, diverse—and constantly changing. IoT data from billions of interactions between devices and people is not only massive, it is complex and variable. Predefined programs aren't up to the task of analyzing it and traditional systems can't take advantage of unstructured IoT data, like weather and social.

A cognitive IoT can make sense of all types of data. In fact, it can choose its own data sources and decide which patterns and relationships to pay attention to. It uses machine learning and advanced processing to organize the data and generate insights. A cognitive IoT can also evolve and improve on its own through learned self-correction and adaptation.
