Cognitive Analytics Management Processes are at the heart of digital transformation of organizations from basic to smart. They generate evidence-based insights to make informed decisions to achieve desired shared values for a sustainable growth. Digital transformation is changing the world, and everything is getting smarter (smart business, smart city, smart education, smart bank, smarter government, smart health, smart home, smart love, smart sport, etc). Recent market surveys showed a market growth of more than 400% in the last five years with an expected continuation at such radical growth. The surveys also indicated an acute shortage of talented people with both analytics and management skills worldwide as well as in the MENA region.
