These strategic areas are for IBM the basis of both its constantly expanding solution portfolio and its progressive transformation into a cognitive solutions and cloud platform provider.
Innovation is the core of the IBM strategy. With the IBM Watson Group, newly launched in January 2014, IBM underscores the importance of cognitive computing for the company in a new era of IT systems that can learn, argue and interact with humans in natural language. The cognitive system IBM Watson was designed to handle the analysis, evaluation and interpretation of enormous amounts of unstructured data in fractions of a second on the basis of natural language. It is able to collect information from data independently and to draw conclusions from it. The system is thereby coming close to the cognitive skills of humans and harbours enormous potential for future applications in business and society.
