Enabling Your Cloud Transformation by Design

LEVERAGE CLOUD TO SUPERCHARGE YOUR DIGITAL JOURNEY

DELIVER DIGITAL AT THE SPEED AND SCALE OF CLOUD


To empower the digital objectives of your business, it is essential to define where and how cloud can deliver maximum benefits. Cognizant Cloud Consulting enables and structures your cloud journey to help you achieve business agility and digital transformation.

With software vendors now offering subscription-based services instead of licensed products (e.g., Microsoft Office365, Salesforce.com and Workday), enterprises are adopting multiple cloud services across the organization. They are also seeking additional cloud services to reduce datacenter investments through infrastructure and functions as a service (e.g., Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure Active Directory). In addition, the increasing number of industry-specific cloud services gives enterprises a way to modernize their digital operations.

On the flip side, enterprises now face maturation issues, where cloud governance, costs, security, compliance, privacy, DevSecOps and management are fragmented across the organization. Cognizant Cloud Consulting offers forward-looking points of view, industry benchmarks and frameworks to align cloud operations to the digital objectives of the enterprise. 

Cognizant Cloud Consulting’s key tenet is Cloud Transformation by Design. This starts with cloud-first, innovation-first, capability-first and secure-first aspects that define the relevant principles on which enterprises can build the most effective cloud operating model. Then, the transformation phase aligns and optimizes cloud initiatives and operations across the enterprise to achieve higher levels of maturity. Change management, along with selected professional and managed services from Cognizant’s extensive cloud portfolio, deliver successful outcomes.
