Building the Cognitive EnterpriseTM

A blueprint for AI-powered transformation


A new era of business reinvention is dawning. Organizations are facing an unprecedented convergence of technological, social, and regulatory forces.

As artificial intelligence, blockchain, automation, Internet of Things, 5G, and edge computing become pervasive, their combined impact will reshape standard business architectures. The “outside-in” digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the “inside-out” potential of data exploited with these exponential technologies.

We call this next-generation business model the Cognitive Enterprise.

More and more enterprises are seizing the opportunity to truly transform themselves. By leveraging these new technologies in conjunction with historic strengths, companies can reshape their competitive positions and build new business models, often extending beyond industry boundaries.

Start your journey to building a smarter business
Three key components underpin the Cognitive Enterprise:
1.Market-making Business Platforms
Leveraging data as the new currency, companies can reinvent competitive positioning and create new market opportunities, often extending beyond industry boundaries.
See how Yara is leveraging data to help 620 million farm families create a more sustainable future.
2.Intelligent Workflows
By infusing end-to-end and front-to-back processes with exponential technologies, exceptional outcomes and differentiation can be delivered.
IBM and Chemonics came together to design an intelligent supply chain that delivers medical supplies to more than 60 countries.
3.Enterprise Experience and Humanity
Any new business platform will only succeed if it embeds a compelling experience for customers, employees, and partners throughout, while maximizing the full potential of the ever-evolving, human-technology partnership.
See how Lufthansa improved flight operations and enhanced customer experience while cutting costs by creating a suite of apps for its Ground Ops team.
