Dun & Bradstreet teams with Watsonx on procurement solution
Data and analytics multinational Dun & Bradstreet and IBM have announced a strategic collaboration that will combine the former’s data cloud and the latter’s AI offering.
The initiative aims to help clients drive generative AI (GenAI) use in their native workflows to help deliver growth and efficiency across a variety of business functions.
Dun & Bradstreet intends to use IBM’s watsonx to help organisations expand their use of GenAI across workflows and solutions.
Watsonx is IBM’s next-generation AI and data platform, and it draws upon Dun & Bradstreet’s Data Cloud, containing more than half a billion private and public companies.
Dun & Bradstreet’s Ask Procurement is one of the new solutions that the companies intend to bring to market. Ask Procurement will help procurement professionals unlock new data and insights, to help increase savings and mitigate the risk potential.
Slated for delivery in the first half of next year, Ask Procurement will be able to be integrated with Dun & Bradstreet solutions or existing ERPs or procurement solutions.
“Dun & Bradstreet and IBM are ideally suited to help companies responsibly navigate the rapidly evolving generative AI space, because we know their business environments and processes well."
“With hundreds of thousands of organisations globally relying on us every day, we believe there is no better company than Dun & Bradstreet to lead the industry and our clients into the future.” - Ginny Gomez, President, North America, Dun & Bradstreet
