IBM Watson FSS Industry Solutions Platform—Fast Start for 2017

Welcome to the new year and new opportunities with the IBM Watson FSS Industry Solutions Platform. I’m looking forward to talking to our entire network of IBM Analytics Business Partners about our new strategy—and my channel sales team is ready to support you this year. Our focus will continue to be on the business and industry solutions for the line of business in the IBM Analytics portfolio. Also, we’ll concentrate on the financial services industry and welcome the opportunity to help our financial services clients do real work by streamlining their business processes and business technology with cognitive capabilities. Our industry solutions platform sales team will transform the financial industry with a modern financial services platform that is secure and on the cloud. But we can’t reach all of our existing and new clients without you, our Business Partners.

Join me on February 2 for our Fast Start webcast to hear about our new sales plays, new strategy and help available for every type of Business Partner to target the disruption in the Financial Services market and reap your share of the USD30 billion-dollar business opportunity this year.

Why should you attend this webcast?

Learn how IBM will continue to transform our solutions in Watson Customer Insights for wealth management, banking and insurance. See how our partners can sell these solutions plus your own complementary solutions and capture additional service opportunities to support these digital platforms in financial services to manage risk and compliance, counter fraud and make safer payments.

While every industry needs a digital foundation to layer solutions for a competitive advantage, the financial services industry is a natural place to start with its complex and expensive regulatory environment. Help your clients glean customer insights from their data and secure and protect their data. EY is just one Global Systems Integrator building a solution with IBM to simplify risk management as a key aspect of reducing fatigue and complexity for their clients. Their clients are challenged to collect risk management data all over the world, consolidate the processes and use effective tools in the cloud for C-level executives to simplify the collection of data, analyze it and then present the data to successfully manage risk. Learn more about successful Business Partner use cases to target the FSS industry by attending this webcast.

Josh Sutton, Global Head, Artificial Intelligence at Publicis.Sapient, recently shared his views on how “Cognitive is a fundamental game-changer in the way the world is going to work.” He comments that you should explore adding a virtual assistant to existing solutions to provide a superior customer experience at a very low cost. In the webcast, we’ll share the process to build a virtual assistant for the call center of a retail bank and show how your clients can benefit from the insights from the data within the firewall.
