The Nordic market for cognitive solutions is expected to grow by approximately 50% per year over the next three years and will, according to EVRY’s analysis of the market, be worth around NOK 40 billion in 2020.
Technology built on artificial intelligence and robots has evolved to become the foundation for businesses to fundamentally transform. What this means for customers is that decisions can be made more quickly and accurately with the help of advanced predictive analysis, and processes can be automated. Data analysis can provide new and deeper insights into customer needs can be identified and innovative solutions created.
EVRY’s ambition is to work with customers as their preferred independent partner for the application of cognitive solutions as an integral part of their strategy and technology platform. With cognitive, EVRY can help customers build solid business cases with rapid return on investments.
As part of EVRY’s acceleration of its strategy, the company has expanded its long-term collaboration with IBM to include cognitive technology and entered into an agreement as a global systems integrator.
“We have selected IBM as a global partner and as an important part of our focus on cognitive technology. EVRY will incorporate IBM’s technology into its solutions and will adapt it to local conditions. Our customers will therefore be able to access scalable systems capable of understanding, reasoning and learning, and these will be provided with a standard interface, implementation methodology and best practice. Using cognitive solutions delivered by EVRY will provide customers with services that will help them to be even more relevant in the digital age”, comments Björn Ivroth, CEO of EVRY.
“Together with EVRY, we are pleased to announce a first-of-its kind partnership in the Nordic region around cognitive solutions. Due to its market presence and industry capabilities, EVRY is uniquely positioned to leverage IBM’s cognitive capabilities to deliver business value. Our partnership shows how IBM’s expertise, technology and services can help EVRY benefit from new market conditions and to offer its customers innovative solutions,” comments Matt Milton, Vice President IBM EVRY Partnership.
Cognitive computing is based on a variety of technology including advanced data analysis, machine, learning, and deep learning techniques that understand the world similarly to humans via senses, learning and experience. With its easy access to structured and unstructured data and its significant processing power and data storage, EVRY will develop cloud solutions that are adapted for a range of industries, including banking and finance, insurance, retailing, healthcare and local government. In addition, EVRY will offer its customers standard solutions based on IBM technology, such as chatbots/conversational services (NLP), customer insights, advanced analytics and automated reasoning, as well as solutions relating to anti-money laundering and regulatory issues.
