OFFERINGS

HYBRID CLOUD COMPONENTS


Cognizant’s Hybrid Cloud offers a comprehensive portfolio of components designed to enhance your ability to embrace the cloud and its benefits—accelerating time to market and giving you a significant competitive edge.

  • HYBRID CLOUD CORE

    INTEGRATING CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS

    Cognizant’s Hybrid Cloud core provides a solution architecture for integrating multiple cloud provider environments and technology components. Applications can utilize pooled resources across cloud environments and federate across clouds, with the Hybrid Cloud core providing the fabric that makes this possible.

    The Hybrid Cloud core provides automated governance across disparate environments and technology components in a complex hybrid cloud ecosystem. It also provides predefined domain-specific controls such as PCI/HIPAA.

  • SECURITY

    AUTHENTICATE AND AUTHORIZE ACCESS

    Security is a fundamental aspect of Hybrid Cloud. By including the right sets of tools and integrations, the hybrid foundation ensures availability of critical features such as authentication, authorization and granular access control.

    Also included are tools that serve as the central point for log aggregation from different sources and alert administrators to the occurrence of any out of the ordinary event.

    The Hybrid Cloud solution provides single sign-on with Enterprise Active Directory and advanced authentication mechanisms such as multifactor authentication and digital rights management (DRM).

  • CLOUD MANAGEMENT PLATFORM

    THE HEART OF HYBRID CLOUD

    Cognizant’s Cloud Management Platform (CMP) offers self-service and brokerage capabilities across clouds. The CMP takes provisioning automation to a new level, with features such as application profile-based provisioning, DevOps integration and configuration automation.

    The CMP also provides other insightful features, such as cloud brokerage, capacity management, intelligent workload placement and lifecycle actions for workloads across clouds. 

  • APPLICATION ONBOARDING

    ENSURING SMOOTH CLOUD MIGRATION

    The key elements of Cognizant’s approach to Hybrid Cloud are our architecture and transformation blueprints, which present a tested, proven way to adopt hybrid cloud and onboard applications.

    Even large IT organizations with varied skillsets are often unable to adopt cloud with optimum speed and certainty. Our application onboarding services ensure a smooth adoption of the Hybrid Cloud, reducing risk and downtime as you migrate to the cloud.

  • SERVICE MANAGEMENT

    END-TO-END MONITORING AND MANAGEMENT

    For effective and automated service management, Cognizant implements a self-service approach to service management with an end-to-end monitoring and performance management architecture that covers everything from applications to infrastructure. Our monitoring framework leverages native public cloud tools as well as third-party monitoring and application service management tools.

  • DATA PROTECTION & BUSINESS CONTINUITY

    LEADING-EDGE BACKUP AND PROTECTION

    Embedded in the Cognizant Hybrid Cloud environment are leading-edge tools for backup and data protection across the cloud, along with information lifecycle management and archival capabilities.

    With predefined deployment options for high availability within the site and across sites (a multisite approach), Cognizant’s data protection and business continuity features cover the public cloud and architectures with a multiregion approach.

ENABLERS

MAXIMIZE THE CLOUD’S VALUE

With a digital delivery model that adapts to ever-changing market demands, Cognizant enables a customized approach to maximize the cloud’s business value. Combining industry and technology expertise with intellectual property (IP) and accelerators, we help you adopt “Cloud@Scale.”

Measure the cloud’s real impact on your business

Cognizant’s data-rich decision-making tool, CloudFrame, provides cost estimates and comparisons of service providers and hardware/software components, so you can gauge the impact of a Cloud-for-Digital strategy.

Transform the role of IT from enabler to driver

Cognizant’s enterprise-wide automation platform, HiveCenter™, brings in hyper-automation for IT operations through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-based techniques, making operations predictive and preemptive in nature. It also integrates operations and governance across application and infrastructure platforms, transforming the role of IT from business enabler to business driver.

Determine which applications to migrate to the cloud

AppLens, Cognizant’s proprietary application assessment framework, helps your organization determine the workloads that should be migrated to the cloud.

Deploy a valuable migration management framework

Cognizant's in-house migration management tool, ArcTern, aligns with migration methodologies, using automated workflows and comprehensive, near-real-time governance for large migration projects.
