-- Cognizant erzielte bestmögliche Ergebnisse in den Kategorien Vision und Leistungsversprechen im Bereich Anwendungs-Outsourcing, Vision für neue Technologien sowie Partnerschafts- und Innovationsstrategie

TEANECK, New Jersey, 10. Februar 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) gibt heute bekannt, dass das Unternehmen im Report „The Forrester Wave™: EMEA Applications Outsourcing Services, Q1 2014", den das unabhängige Marktforschungsunternehmen Forrester Research am 3. Februar 2014 herausgab, als „Leader" ausgezeichnet wurde.

Cognizant zählt zu den Unternehmen, die eigens ausgewählt wurden, um an der Forrester Wave-Evaluierung teilzunehmen. Der Report untersuchte und bewertete Cognizant auf Basis einer 43 Kriterien umfassenden Methodik, die sich auf das aktuelle Angebot, die Strategie sowie die Marktpräsenz bezieht. Den vollständigen Report finden Sie hier.

Cognizant erzielte das höchstmögliche Ergebnis in der Kategorie „Strategie". Bewertet wurde die Gesamtstrategie aller beteiligten Dienstleister in Bezug auf Leistungsversprechen, Zukunft des Anwendungs-Outsourcing, Visionen für ergebnisorientierte Kundenbeziehungen, Strategien zur kontinuierlichen Verbesserung sowie Visionen für verbesserte Ergebnisse durch Nutzung geistigen Eigentums.

„Mehr als jeder andere Anwendungs-Outsourcing-Anbieter verbindet Cognizant effiziente Kundenbetreuung mit Kundenfürsprache im Unternehmen und unterstützt zudem auch noch dezentralisierte Entscheidungsprozesse", lobt der Analystenreport. „Überdies hat Cognizant ein gutes Gespür für die zentralen Anforderungen der EMEA-Kunden und ist ein optimaler Anbieter für das gesamte Spektrum der Anwendungs-Outsourcing-Services, insbesondere für Kunden in Großbritannien."

„Der Umgang mit den verschiedenen EMEA Kulturen ist eine große Herausforderung für die Anbieter", so der Report weiter. „Auf der anderen Seite können gerade Unternehmen wie Cognizant, die lokale Entscheidungsprozesse ermöglichen, hier erfolgreich sein." „In jeder Region, in der sie tätig sind, richten sie eine eigene Geschäftseinheit ein", berichtet ein Cognizant Kunde. „Auf diese Weise haben wir langjährigen Kontakt mit dem Vertreter vor Ort, was geringere Fluktuation und eine verbesserte Arbeitsbeziehung bedeutet."

„Die Auszeichnung honoriert unsere kundenorientierte Kultur und unser beratungsorientiertes ‚High Touch'-Beziehungsmodell als Kern unseres differenzierten Leistungsversprechens und Kundenerlebnisses", erklärt Rajeev Mehta, CEO for IT-Services bei Cognizant. „Angesichts der Globalisierung, regulatorischer Veränderungen und neuer Technologiearchitekturen wie Social Media, Mobile Computing, Analytik und Cloud betrachten die Kunden Cognizant als einen Partner, der sie in doppelter Hinsicht unterstützt: einerseits, um ihre Unternehmensleistung auf ein neues Niveau zu bringen, andererseits, um Innovation in einer integrierten Plattform zu erzielen. Wir investieren kontinuierlich in tragfähige Kundenbeziehungen und sind bestrebt, unsere branchenführenden Prozesse auf den Standort EMEA zu übertragen sowie leistungsstarke Teams und Kompetenzen vor Ort aufzubauen. Daher glauben wir, dass wir ganz besonders fähig sind, unseren Kunden zu mehr Agilität, Innovation und Umsatzwachstum zu verhelfen. Unsere EMEA-Kunden setzen auf langfristige Outsourcing-Programme und globale Geschäftsmodelle. Somit steht diese Auszeichnung auch für das Vertrauen unserer Kunden, dass wir ihnen einen hohen geschäftlichen Mehrwert liefern können."

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
