The aim of the initiative is 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 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 potential for risk. 

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.
