Making businesses more agile and able to harness new opportunities through Enterprise Architecture.

Given the emergence of disruptive technologies and their influence on how customers are engaged, it is important to stay current, agile and stable with the rapidly changing state of your industry. It is also important to take advantage of emerging technology platforms such as social media, mobile technologies, big data analytics and cloud-to drive business and performance. Cognizant’s Enterprise Architecture services focus on ensuring that our customers achieve both of these goals.

OFFERINGS

Enterprise Architecture Program Enablement

Our service starts with an assessment of the existing Enterprise Architecture Program against a Reference EA Operating Model and a Maturity Model.  Based on the objectives and needs of the customer, a roadmap towards a target maturity level is developed.  We help establish the program with:

  • Starter repository of architectural principles, standards and artifact templates
  • Enterprise Architecture processes, including governance, roles and responsibilities
  • Optionally offer an innovation lab to help in keeping up with technological advancements
  • Support the path to the desired maturity by providing our own consultants to fill skills, resource gaps and cross-training

Views may include:

  • Other Views as needed

Innovation as a Service

This service leverages Cognizant’s technology R&D and maintenance of a Technology Radar. We are constantly looking at emerging technologies and researching their application.

We plan, setup and test at our cutting edge innovation lab for the customer where testing and certification is done using targeted pilot innovation concepts. After that, we provide ongoing managed services to operate the lab.
