This IDC study helps organizations build the business case and a road map for implementing cognitive systems. It is based on knowledge gathered over the past 12 months from both buyers and suppliers.
"Cognitive systems are an important and powerful innovation accelerator but have fundamental differences from traditional enterprise technologies," notes David Schubmehl, research director for IDC's Cognitive Systems and Content Analytics research. According to Gard Little, research director for IDC's Digital Transformation Professional Services research, "Several organizations accelerating their digital transformation with cognitive systems are finding they need to bring new skills to their teams, and beyond closing the skills gap, perhaps the biggest benefit of using third-party implementation services is the chance to speed up their overall transformation."
