What defines cognitive manufacturing maturity? Our study found three stages of cognitive
manufacturing maturity. We call those organizations in the earliest stage Observers, followed
by Starters and Actives, respectively. These groups differ on two key characteristics: the
presence of an overall strategy for cognitive manufacturing, and degree of strategic execution
of multiple projects that enable higher project success and significantly fewer failed projects.
Strategy is the crucial enabler of higher maturity.
How do manufacturers get beyond the obstacles and barriers to increase cognitive
manufacturing maturity? The obstacles encountered by our respondents are tied to
organizational maturity. Overcoming them is fundamental to increase cognitive
In this report, we’ll first describe cognitive computing and how it gives rise to cognitive

The Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s busiest performing arts centers and Australia’s number one tourist destination. Each year, it attracts more than 8.2 million visitors on site and stages more than 2,000 performances attended by over 1.5 million people.
Since opening its doors in 1973, the Opera House has become the symbol of modern Australia and the country’s premier tourist destination, with an iconic national-identity value that Deloitte Access Economics has estimated at $4.6 billion.
On the Opera House’s 40th anniversary, it embarked on a Decade of Renewal, a series of projects to prepare the Opera House for future generations of artists, audiences, and visitors. Because renewal isn’t just about the building and the arts; it’s also about renewing technology and systems. This enabled the Opera House to engage VMtech and BlackBerry Cylance to modernize its IT server and network infrastructure, as well as information management, privacy, and cybersecurity.

More account openings are taking place through digital devices and online, giving the access and anonymity fraudsters need to steal or fabricate identities.

As the pace of business continues to accelerate, forward-looking organizations are beginning to
realize that it is not enough to analyze their data; they must also take action on it. To do this, more
businesses are beginning to systematically operationalize their analytics as part of a business process.

business processes used to make decisions. These systems might be automated or provide manual,
actionable insights. Analytics are currently being embedded into dashboards, applications, devices,
systems, and databases. Examples run from simple to complex and organizations are at different
stages of operational deployment. Newer examples of operational analytics include support for
logistics, customer call centers, fraud detection, and recommendation engines to name just a few.
Embedding analytics is certainly not new but has been gaining more attention recently as data
