OUR LATEST THINKING

Multidimensional Challenges and the Impact of Test Data Management
Test data management (TDM) is vital for quality assurance (QA) functions to best handle the many challenges associated with data security, release management, batch processing, data masking and fencing.
The Case for Agile testing
To integrate testing in the Agile software development lifecycle, the QA team must collaborate with the Scrum master and product owners throughout the process, including manual regression and automated regression testing.
 
Shrinking the Enterprise with SOA
We offer a service-oriented architecture (SOA) framework that is decentralized and agent-based and covers four processes: portal, dashboard, brokers and agents. Such a system facilitates ROI via service reuse, system consolidation and legacy "decommissioning" and direct exposure of services to external customers and B2B partners.
 
Using Compression Techniques to Streamline Image and Video Storage and Retrieval
A guide to the use of compression in storing, retrieving and transmitting digital media content, as divergent uses and business purposes mean variable intra-frame and inter-frame image compression techniques are called for.
Using Gamification to Build a Passionate and Quality-Driven Software Development Team
Gamification techniques are increasingly playing a huge role in software development - to motivate team members, reduce the cost of quality, reward high achievers and more. We suggest you begin software gamifying with project management, innovation, the software-development training process and delivery.
Turning Customer Knowledge into Business Growth
By embracing big data and predictive analytics to create multidimensional customer profiles, companies can make more informed business decisions that better anticipate customer needs, wants and desires.
 
Don't Let Your Data Get SMACked: Introducing 3-D Data Management
Establishing data accuracy and quality is central to data management, but the SMAC stack - social, mobile, analytics and cloud - both makes it more complex to do so and offers tools for accomplishing the mission. We devised a three-tier "3-D" plan for data management based on integration, data fidelity and data integration.
 
Optimizing Agile with Global Software Development and Delivery
Agile software development and global service delivery work seamlessly together through careful coordination of Sprint scheduling, Scrums, stand-up meetings and other elements of the software delivery lifecycle.
 
Lotus Notes Mobile Application Development Using XPages
For migrating Lotus Notes apps to Web or mobile, XPages is an ideal software development platform, allowing developers to readily tackle testing and deployment challenges.
 
Agile Planning in a Multi-project, Multi-team Environment
Two Agile development case studies illustrate the key roles in the Scrum method of the outer three layers of the Agile "planning onion": strategy, portfolio and product. Coordinating the roles of multiple teams and projects involved the creation of a solid front-door process including backlog, vision, estimates, quotes, inception and transition.

  • Better Warehouse Management for a Large Retailer
  • Leading Media and Entertainment Company Slashes Costs

Large Restaurant Company Enhances Scheduling

A $4 billion multi-unit restaurant company needed a better way to manage its scheduling than the existing in-house labor scheduling application provided. We developed a robust scheduling application that allows managers to plan ahead and attain near perfect efficiency in schedule generation.

The application was integrated with the Point of Sale (POS) system, allowing managers to enforce schedules to clock-in screens. Results included reduced labor and overtime costs, improved guest service and greater employee satisfaction. DOWNLOAD PDF

Global Film Manufacturer Replaces Plant Floor System

This company needed to replace an end-of-life film material plant floor system with a more modern system that would be easier to support and maintain. After considering a solution from a leading ERP provider, the manufacturer chose Cognizant to develop a custom solution constructed with Microsoft .Net technologies.

The project took half the time the customer expected and the manufacturer now has the flexibility it needs to better support its own clients.

Better Warehouse Management for a Large Retailer

A U.S. retail giant needed an updated warehouse management system for a smoother flow of warehouse operations and better customer experience. As part of the engagement, we added a comprehensive e-commerce fulfillment capability to its existing warehouse management system. We also implemented REST-based Web services to the database for core business functions and a J2EE backend for new functions.

The revamped system improved productivity and quality output for all involved in the workflow.

Leading Media and Entertainment Company Slashes Costs

To reduce costs, a global music company outsourced the development and maintenance work for its applications, which included SAP Financials and the Oracle 10G database. We took on this task using onsite/offshore development methodology.

The company experienced vastly improved project governance, easier and more effective application support and the flexibility to adjust resources as required. DOWNLOAD PDF
