Fergal Murphy


How IBM is using cognitive to transform its intranet experience

Presentation from Intranets2017

About my talk

Over the past three years IBM have rolled out a new global intranet solution aimed at making IBM’s 300,000 employees happier and more productive. Most recently, IBM took their own cognitive analytics technology and applied it to the problem of improving intranet search.

Using this successful implementation as a case study, in this presentation, Fergal will:

  • showcase how IBM have applied cognitive analytics within their new intranet environment
  • demonstrate how natural language questions can be used to search, and find, the right information, faster
  • illustrate the impact of the new search solution on staff productivity
