Cognitive Is a Journey
You do not just simply turn on cognitive computing and suddenly your data center will start deciphering your data for you.
It is a journey that does not happen overnight. A great example of this journey is the IBM acquisition of The Weather Company.
Cognitive begins with access to data
The first steps into your cognitive journey begin with access to data.
If your company is like many organizations, you have a lot of data, and much of it is housed in silos.
Sales has a set of customer data. Operations has logistic and stock data. Finance has, of course, has financial data.
That data must be accessible to be useful.
And the more data that you have, the better your results.
