Developed utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing, Clarity is a competitive insights engine. Analyzing structured and unstructured data, Clarity aims to improve market offering portfolio and its performance by measuring perceived competitiveness in the market, visualizing insights to drive actionable, strategic decisions. Since the launch of Clarity in early September of 2018, usage has continually increased as product coverage expands, and users integrate the tool into their workflows. Clarity reduces competitive research time on products by 30%.
The core strategy behind this initiative is to enable an unsupervised data-driven AI system that can deliver competitive assessment of products and solutions in the marketplace.
Offering Managers, Market Researchers, Executives and other users across the business would usually utilize a variety of sources to validate product insights and provide a comprehensive view of offering competitiveness. Cross functional teams regularly conduct this competitive research, which was manual, time consuming and costly process which can be particularly challenging for businesses with large product portfolios and fast-changing customer environments. Clarity allows to drastically cut time and manual effort, simultaneously boosting the efficiency of that activity.
Clarity uses a metric unique to the engine itself called the Clarity Pulse Score, visualized through sorted stream graphs. This score is a single measure of competitiveness produced through a proprietary algorithm, comprised of star rating, review count and overall sentiment for IBM offerings and direct competitors to provide a view of their specific competitive set.
Clarity aggregates unstructured text from a variety of peer-to-peer review sites, news and search data, where comments are widely shared by users and experts. The aggregated data is then filtered by product names provided by the user to identify the appropriate content for each product in the inputted list. Clarity consolidates insights from thousands of reviews and articles, providing product managers with a clear view of product performance against its competitors. It sorts comments into topics to drive feedback loops and product improvement and enables the user to access the original data source through drill down visualizations.
Across the roles, Clarity delivers insights by providing an efficient and transparent analysis of existing external data sets. Designed to complement internal performance metrics, Clarity enables IBMers to efficiently understand and learn what users are saying about their products, all whilst sharpening their understanding of market dynamics. With Clarity providing a detailed aggregated view of months of research insights across thousands of reviews, news articles and search insights, teams are able to provide a near real-time view of user perception of both IBM and competitor products. This equips teams with an outside-in perspective on the necessary information needed to develop a future roadmap and appropriate investment for product improvement, articulate strengths in sales plays, marketing actions and develop a playbook for success against the competition.
