Get smarter business processes with AI from IBM and Softchoice

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fundamentally transforming the way businesses operate and connect with consumers.

AI tools allow every industry imaginable the ability to make decisions through harnessing data. When a company becomes a data driven organization, they provide themselves with a significant competitive advantage. Whether the outcome is to better serve customers, increase efficiencies, improve processes, or to identify risks, data is now being used in every decision.

With data playing a critical role in business leaders decision making, the traditional and manual methods of collecting, discovering, governing and analyzing information are no longer feasible. Organizations are facing four major data challenges: volume, variety, velocity, and veracity.

The 5 Ways AI Can Change Your Company

Volume

With the Internet, cell phones, social media, sensor data, and other sources, every day the data mountain grows by 2.5 billion gigabytes. In 2020, we will produce 50x more data points than we did in 2010. The sheer volume of data is too costly for most organizations to be able to efficiently process using traditional methods and systems.

Variety

Data no longer comes from one single source. 80% of data is now from unstructured sources such as email, documents, and social media. If you’re only looking at your structured internal systems, like CRM or ERP, you’re making decisions off incomplete information. Better analytics and decision making requires utilizing a broad spectrum of data.

Velocity

You need to be able to act on information in a timely manner vs. waiting for strained IT resources to manually generate data. Organizations also have trouble keeping up with the speed of data and we must understand there is a time value to it. No longer can businesses spend 80% of their time preparing data, and 20% of their time analyzing information.

Veracity

Being able to trust the information you’re working with is critical in making decisions. We all know the saying "Garbage in, Garbage out", and a lack of data governance around addressing data quality, or understanding where the information is coming from contributes to organizations making decisions off bad or incorrect information.

Analytics & Social Media

AI tools allow every industry imaginable the ability to make decisions through harnessing data. When a company becomes a data driven organization, they provide themselves with a significant competitive advantage. Whether the outcome is to better serve customers, increase efficiencies, improve processes, or to identify risks, data is now being used in every decision.

With data playing a critical role in business leaders decision making, the traditional and manual methods of collecting, discovering, governing and analyzing information are no longer feasible. Organizations are facing four major data challenges: volume, variety, velocity, and veracity.

With the top performing companies 5x more likely to use analytics, data has become the business world’s new natural resource and basis of competitive advantage.

Legacy analytics environments that are manual, error prone, and reactive in nature can be fixed. No longer struggle to maintain, manage, and mine for value. Learn more with less data sets. IBM Watson is focused on quality of data, not quantity.

Security

When 93% of Security Operations Center (SOC) managers are unable to triage all potential threats, it’s time to rethink how organizations protect data. Cognitive security provides actionable information at a speed and scale like never before.

With IBM’s QRadar Watson Advisor, you get quick and accurate analysis of security threats, saving precious time and resources. Accelerate incident triage with more automation, alleviate pressure of team skill gaps, augment contributions of security teams, and empower security analysts in clearing backlogs.
