The emergence of the Cognitive Enterprise presents the opportunity to harness hidden capabilities, finds this report by IBM.
Key points include:
- Drivers of the Cognitive Enterprise: 26 percent of organisations are earmarking funds for AI / cognitive technologies, while there is a growing interest in other emerging technologies
- The platform-centric organisation: 46 percent of CXOs surveyed are either considering, or already have, active platform architectures in response to the disruptive impact of new technologies
- The learning enterprise: A successful organisation will need to engage with an ecosystem of platforms to support its business. Competitive advantage will depend on how well and how fast a core platform is able to learn and continually adapt to the shifting marketplace
- The composable organisation: The Cognitive Enterprise will be composed of multiple platforms – some owned, some bought and some borrowed. The relationship between these platforms and the organisation will shift as their marketplace relevance and distinctive capacities evolve
