Watsonization

Watsonization

Cognitive computing, the “human-like” unstructured thinking popularized by IBM's supercomputer Watson on the U.S. television quiz show Jeopardy!, signaled a quantum leap for artificial intelligence. For asset managers reliant on legions of analysts; wealth managers threatened by robo-advice; and risk managers limited by available inputs, the potential of this technology is tangible. Learn how first movers in medical science, publishing and cyber-security industries are commercializing it today.

Googlization

Googlization

Each day, images, prose, tweets and machine-readable data add countless petabytes of information to the cloud. The growing inability to discover what’s valuable and connect data threads directly impacts asset managers; investment due diligence, product development and investor servicing can easily miss the mark. Find out how data-smart companies are leveraging technology to distill intelligence through ultra-sophisticated data tagging, mining and management.

Amazonization

Consumers are at the center of a new universe, wielding influence over companies and products through online interactions. At the same time, the troves of data collected on users through online marketplaces and other venues enable mega-purveyors such as Amazon and Alibaba to personalize customer experiences and offers. Expansion beyond consumer goods to financial services is a logical growth strategy for these disrupters. Explore the ways e-commerce is changing the competitive landscape for asset managers.

Uberization

Margin pressures and competition have compelled businesses to deconstruct traditional value chains. In particular, emerging models based on networks are changing the scope and dimensions of outsourcing. With networks in a “sharing” or “gig” economy, the value chain is reset, shifting infrastructure and the face of the company to contractors. Learn how retooling your business model can magnify the ability to scale effectively.
