Process Optimized Clouds

Process optimized clouds weave insights and advice into the context of business processes such as those related to customer care, procurement and billing and human resources to help business leaders make real-time decisions that result in more agile organizations.

For example, a process optimized cloud with cognitive insights for an employee service desk would help employees with self-service on IT and business-related queries. This improves employee productivity and reduces costs associated with IT help desks.

Applying the same principles to procurement, cognitive insights for category managers and chief procurement managers reduce the risks in the supply chain and better manage spending.

Cognitive computing made a big splash when IBM introduced Watson on "Jeopardy" a few years ago, and its impact on the world has only grown since then. The ability to address complex situations and data trends using ambiguous data is a hot agenda item with business and IT decision makers today, and as such the demand for cognitive clouds is on the rise. In this slideshow, CognitiveScale explains this new category in cloud computing.

Cognitive clouds address three of the biggest challenges facing businesses today: securely sourcing data from multiple sources, analyzing unstructured data, and getting actionable results from analytic initiatives. Cognitive clouds address these challenges by augmenting human intelligence and accelerating the value of Big Data by extracting insights from structured and unstructured data. This includes data from sources that are difficult to capture, process and analyze such as information from devices, social media and images.

Cognitive clouds generate insights and advice, weaving them into contextually relevant visual data stories that apply to industries and business processes. They are able to do all of these things while providing businesses with complete data transparency, lineage, management, and control over the data.
