Working closely with IBM Watson experts on select client engagements, Essextec has already gained substantial experience implementing IBM cognitive solutions. Essextec has delivered Watson Hackathons, mentored Watson customers, and assisted with "first of a kind" cognitive transformations. The newly formed Essextec CISM business unit is led by Senior Vice President, Evan Herbst, with technical leadership provided by Senior Vice President, Slava Frid.
"We've been fortunate to have an early start on cognitive transformations and new projects leveraging emerging cognitive capabilities," said Mr. Herbst. "With the formation of Essextec CISM, we will focus on further building our team of experts and working with our partners to bring to market cognitive enabled solutions that directly benefit our customers."
Essextec has been evangelizing the Cognitive Era and sharing best practices and thought leadership. Their expertise has been highlighted in presentations at IBM World of Watson and University of Miami Compliance Roundtable on topics related to the cognitive journey, customer service chatbots, and Watson Explorer's content analytics capabilities.
Essextec CISM is working directly with key customers and partners, including Teach For America and Ingram Micro, as they begin their own cognitive journeys and look to take advantage of cognitive computing capabilities. The new business unit is also partnering with chapters of the Young Presidents' Organization to educate business leaders on how the world will change with systems that understand reason, learn, and interact with humans in a natural way.
Essextec delivers Big Data & Analytics, Business Risk Services, Cloud Solutions, Digital Engagement, Dynamic Infrastructure, and Cognitive Computing solutions. Leveraging decades of successful partnerships, combined with deep technical and industry expertise, our innovative, end-to-end solutions encompass infrastructure, software, consulting, and services. The result is outstanding business outcomes for each of our clients.
