Cognitive Automation at Scale

Aera's Cognitive Operating System™ is the digital brain of your organization - bringing agility, scale, and accuracy to your decision-making processes.

This is achieved by dynamically orchestrating the four foundational architectural pillars required for Cognitive Automation: data, science, process, and change.



Aera’s patented, real-time crawling technology collects, harmonizes and augments billions of transactions from complex enterprise systems and external data sources, all while preserving context. As a result, 100% of internal and external data required for decision automation and augmentation are made available - in real-time.



Aera operationalizes advanced techniques including optimization, predictions, modeling and artificial intelligence (AI) within the decision context. Domain expertise is integrated in patented models with thousands of predefined measures for all areas of the business. Bring your own, build your own, or use our pre-packaged algorithms. 100% of operational capabilities needed to predict outcomes are connected and processed in context, real-time, at scale.



Aera models the dynamic cognitive processes that underpin human decision-making. With its patented intuitive workflows, business rules and intelligent conversational voice interactions, Aera delivers the system continuity required for transparent, explainable recommendations that drive decision-making and execution.



Cognitive Automation requires both advanced technology and behavioral change. Decision efficacy history creates transparency into process and performance improvement with Aera. With this unified view of decision-execution at scale, and a DynamicUX that provides bi-directional recommendations and auditing, users can guide the digital brain, codified in Aera skills which are available via mobile, dashboards and interactive voice-lets. 100% of the visibility, auditability and UX needed to establish trust between the system and its users is provided.
