Forrester Research zeichnet Cognizant als „Leader" im Bereich Anwendungs-Outsourcing-Services für die EMEA-Region aus

-- 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."
