Research and Development
Cognizant’s GTO Research & Development (R&D) team of engineers and architects is the starting point for our new technologies. We study leading-edge advancements and spot opportunities to leverage technologies for breakthrough business results. We then strategize how to best bring them to our clients—in some cases recommending that a Center of Excellence be established.
R&D specializes in applied research. Our initiatives identify technology that’s new and potentially strong for business. We look for links between emerging technologies (such as machine learning, green IT, sensor networks and pervasive cloud) and innovative business applications (such as predictive/social/motion analysis, intelligent data centers, and pervasive apps).

Our detailed evaluations and prototype developments help solve today’s problems and anticipate tomorrow’s more complex challenges.
Among the real-world solutions our global research team has created are:
- ClaimPerfect anti-fraud insurance solution
- Telecom Fraud Management System
- CPatterns pattern analysis tool
Currently, our R&D team is building a cloud-based social intelligence platform that will have wide applicability in social networking data and analytical applications.
In addition to delivering emerging-technology and customized business solutions, the GTO R&D team is a leader on the forefront of technology, obtaining patents for our work and regularly publishing in technology journals. And our Cognizant Research Fellowship program brings top technology students from the world’s best universities into our labs.
Our global R&D labs help ensure that Cognizant clients benefit from the smartest technology solutions and services available.
