IT infrastructure for cognitive workloads enables a shift to the connected economy

One thing is certain: in order to compete in the connected economy, organisations are changing what they do and how they do it. What often starts as a realignment of the business around the customer is leading to the invention of new products and new business models.

This cascades to changes in organisational structures, required skills and more. And underpinning all of this is an IT infrastructure built for cognitive workloads that lets companies understand what's needed.
