Cognitive Search and Insight: It’s About Time to Value

Benedict Cumberbatch, star of the BBC series “Sherlock,” has a problem. Sherlock’s stream-of-consciousness deductive speeches must be delivered at warp speed— “100 miles an hour”—and that’s hard to pull off without mistakes.

But, of course, all that speed makes sense. Holmes observed, processed, and bang! Insight. That’s rapid time to value.

Time to Value: The Missing Ingredient

Organizations deploy cognitive search platforms to boost employee productivity, foster innovation, and gain greater insight from their data. But to achieve those goals, they often take on huge professional services from “mega vendors” that don’t deliver an effective cognitive solution.

Let’s just take one example—the well-publicized and very expensive failure of IBM Watson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. Before the plug was pulled on that snafu, the Center had paid IBM and PricewaterhouseCoopers a cool $62M. And wasted a ton of staff time, tech infrastructure, etc. I think that’s called time to damage.

Watson, and many other heavily services-dependent cognitive solutions, is basically just a set of APIs waiting to be woven into a bespoke solution—at enormous expense.

Attivio Cognitive Search: Number One with A Bullet

Remember that phrase? It refers to a song that was number-one on Billboard Magazine’s charting system and still rising fast in terms of sales and radio play. And that pretty much describes Attivio’s Cognitive Search and Insight Platform. We’re number one and gaining “airtime.”

Unlike Watson, our platform can be deployed in a very short time, with multiple solutions running on it. Massive services engagements not required. Bottom-line, we’re delivering much better time to value.


We’re the leader in cognitive search and insight because we have a proven delivery model combined with a superior approach to security.

We’ve been busy briefing analysts about “Project Sherlock,” and the feedback has been positive all around. In the last few months, we’ve made several significant announcements about our platform:

So, why would you settle for Watson when you can have Sherlock? To learn more, visit our webpage about all things Sherlock.
