Building a cognitive enterprise is a journey. This talk will first explain how analytics and cognitive are related to and different from each other. Next, it will discuss the three steps to achieve the ultimate Cognitive Enterprise: 1) Expand the aperture of data and access to data. Acquire all data (enterprise, third-party and public open data). Build data lake(s). Break data silos. Provide management and governance and hence access to data for all users; 2) Build a strong analytics and cognitive foundation. IBM has full capabilities to support our clients; and 3) Empower all personas with analytics and cognitive capabilities. Enable self-service and collaboration. Embed cognitive in the lifecycle of analytics.
