Abstract: The digitally enabled business is not the destination, but the foundation for the Cognitive Business Era, known to many as Watson.While there are great benefits from applying the individual technologies of cloud, analytics, security, mobility and social - the greatest value comes from putting these capabilities together, in the context of an industry; we’re doing that with Petroleum and Mining, we’re bringing cognitive to this industry which will revolutionize how we solve problems.

Cognitive moves you from understanding what happened, predicting what could happen, even understanding what to do about what happens and moves into the unprecedented realm of advisor. Watson finds patterns, does analysis, searches external data and models in real time, in order to provide the rational for answers and enabling you to visualize it. Watson learns about your problems, and it learns through its interactions with you. This is truly the next business era.  ...What will you do with Watson?
