“We’ve trained Watson on our standard solutions and offerings, plus all the prior solutions IBM has designed for large enterprises,” the corporate files state. “This means we can review a client’s RFP [request for proposal] and come up with a new proposed architecture and technical solution design for a state of the art system that can run enterprise businesses at scale.” Proposed solutions will be delivered “in minutes,” it is claimed.
IBM is not leaving all the work to Watson: a document we’ve seen also details “strong governance processes to ensure high quality solutions are delivered globally.”

Big Blue’s explanation for cognitive, er, solutioning’s role is that it will be “greatly aiding the work of the Technical Solutions Managers” rather than replacing them.
