The nascent information-intensive ecosystems are data mining on which companies are working to create value, increase efficiency, create new digital products and services.
They are emerging more and more clearly the roles and technologies needed to create a corporate culture centered on the figure and the basis of heuristic networks, thanks to the cognitive computing.
Cognitive computing can learn from human behavior by developing new processes and models, behavior from the concrete managerial experience of an enterprise.
In recent years, IDC has highlighted the significant contribution that these technologies are putting in service management, but in general, could prove to be a powerful catalyst for the introduction of logical self-service in various business sectors. It is far beyond the simple automation requirements of IT to fully realize their real potential in the core business.
Just according to the latest IDC forecasts, 75% of companies and software developers will include cognitive capabilities and artificial intelligence in at least a business application by 2018. And yet, 40% of the company’s digital transformation initiatives will be supported by their own cognitive computing capacity and AI by 2019.
IDC thus highlights not only the growth of cognitive technologies on the market (+ 55% per year between now and 2020 in terms of expenditure) but also their distribution regarding use within the same companies.
These features will not be limited to data scientists and new analytical models but will be available to all users and many business applications, from the customer experience to the supply chain, from the collaboration with human resources and so on.
By calculating the R&D trend of the software industry, IDC expects this new intelligence provided by cognitive technologies will be available to all those companies that have plans to upgrade their enterprise applications over the next three years.
Finally, IDC says businesses will also be given access to a growing number of cognitive computing platforms on which to develop their own custom applications.
