Cognitive-First: The Next
Generation of Business Apps

The Challenge and Opportunity

The power of new technologies is greater than ever. Organizations have an amazing new arsenal of technological capabilities at their disposal that have the potential to truly change the paradigms of what their business can offer.

But the blinding speed of technological development has generated unprecedented complexity that all organizations are struggling to manage. User experiences today are across every type of device and increasingly new forms of interaction such as voice, chat, augmented reality and more. Architectures today include a complex mix of private, public and hybrid cloud, on premise and SaaS apps, IoT and much more. And data volume, variety and velocity have exploded as both human and machine generated data expand exponentially.

The pressure to deliver applications that can harness these factors and deliver competitive advantage has never been more intense.
