Forrester Research just released “The Forrester Wave™: AI Decisioning Platforms, Q2 2023: The 13 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up” by Mike Gualtieri with Aaron Katz, Catherine Marcin, and Jen Barton, and IBM is proud to be recognized as a Leader.
This report outlines the combination of traditional decision automation tools with machine learning models and other technologies.
