Certus launches Cognition
Posted on 14-Aug-2017 09:31 | Tags Filed under: News

Cognition has been launched by systems integrator Certus Solutions, in alliance with IBM Australia and New Zealand. Cognition’s mission is to empower organisations to transform, innovate and thrive by integrating a design thinking approach to the development of cognitive solutions that enhance people’s lives. 


Cognition’s app “garage” service has been spun out of its parent company, Certus, a Platinum IBM Business Partner that provides IBM-enabled solutions to enterprises across Australia and New Zealand. Powered by Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform, Cognition’s approach will provide enterprises with the perfect combination of people-centred design and agile development methods to improve solution development, efficiency and marketability. 


Cognition’s nimble team of thinkers and makers are led by Managing Partner, Craig Parnham; the former CEO of Sush Mobile, Head of Mobile Products for Spark New Zealand and General Manager of Telstra Digital, who says that Cognition’s philosophy is to create outcomes centred on users to accelerate value creation.


“Cognition is a change agent, bringing together elements from technology, design and business to manifest a new reality. It is at the intersection of three unique and complementary disciplines that Cognition fulfils its purpose,” said Craig Parnham, Managing Partner, Cognition Studio.


Cognition’s approach leverages industry best practices that help brands be as nimble and dynamic as today’s disruptive start-ups, and it uses a broad range of proven service design methods to help create differentiated service experiences. Its dynamic design-thinking methodology is inspired by a range of respected design-thinking methodologies; to ensure that a flexible toolkit can be applied across a broad range of customer engagements. 


“We’re excited to work with strong IBM Business Partners like Certus who accelerate innovation with design thinking and new development methodologies,” says Shawn Murray, Worldwide Director of IBM Bluemix Garage.


Cognition’s services to clients span a broad range of industries and incorporate elements of IBM’s solution stack, including its cloud platform, Bluemix, as well as cognitive and artificial intelligence services via Watson. Combined with design-thinking principles, these innovations are used to build solutions tailored to each company’s goals, vision and strategy. 


The newly launched company is already working with a range of well-known brands to realise its goal of using design led thinking to enhance human experiences across the commercial sector in Australia and New Zealand.
