In September 2017, a group of former IBMers decided to launch a common project with a ambitious objective: to help companies leverage the capabilities of Cognitive technologies so they could make better, more informed decisions about people.

The digitalization that has invested the labor market has undoubtedly changed the way organizations manage their human resources. The People Analytics revolution is gaining speed: companies are adopting a data-based approach to improve people related decision-making throughout an organization, impacting both HR and business units.

This revolution is fueled by the development of new Cognitive technologies, which are products of the field of artificial intelligence. They are able to perform tasks that only humans used to be able to do. Examples of cognitive technologies include computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, speech recognition, and robotics.

In view of this, Cognitive Talent Solutions help companies make better, more informed decisions about their employees through People Analytics solutions powered by cognitive technologies, with a focus on Organizational Network Analysis (ONA).

As data-driven HR becomes the new normal, companies’ ability to learn new ways to discover, develop and protect their talent will be the key to thrive in a rapidly changing environment and maximize business success.
