Cognizant and Microsoft: Better Together

Accelerating Digital Transformation for Our Customers

Partners for 14 years, Cognizant and Microsoft have a mutual focus on putting the customer first. We are helping our customers rethink, reinvent and rewire their organizations to unleash new potential with a mobile-first, cloud-first approach.

In early 2016, Cognizant and Microsoft accelerated their strategic partnership with Project Everest, focusing on engineering and training, aligning sales and marketing teams, co-investment pools as well as executive participation from both organizations. This effective and seamless collaboration allows us to create innovative offerings to address our customers’ business needs and pain points. 

Project Everest is focused on driving transformational business outcomes for our joint customers based on three major areas

Modern Workplace Solutions

Microsoft’s office productivity suites, Office and the on-demand version, Office 365, help improve employee and customer experience while boosting efficiency. Cognizant connects these technologies with IoT, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics AX, Windows 10, SharePoint, Lync, Yammer and enterprise mobility to address our customers’ productivity needs. Modern Workplace Solutions also leverage Cognizant’s Code Halos and Future of Work framework, which utilize persona-based scenarios and technologies.

Data and Analytics

Cognizant has developed in-depth analytics capabilities, including a pool of data scientists and analysts ready to help deploy the Microsoft Cortana analytics suite along with SQL Server 2016. Our BigDecisions platform is now available on the Microsoft stack. This is a great differentiator for our data and analytics partnership and opens up avenues for engaging with customers in a meaningful way by showing them quick demos, proof of concepts, return on investment (ROI), apps and helping them move to brown bags, hackathons and more to deepen the conversation. 

Microsoft and Cognizant’s market-leading big data and analytics partnership focuses on helping customers optimize and manage their business efficiently while gaining insights to transform their business. We are achieving this focus with innovative technology offerings and consulting services as well as Cognizant’s BigDecisions platform with industry-enabled out-of-the-box apps as well as options to build custom apps.

Our BigDecisions analytical solutions include:

  • Telematics. Analytics and reporting requirements for auto manufacturers, owners and dealers.
  • One Retail. Tailored for the analytical needs of the retail industry.
  • Contact Center Analytics. Leverages analytics to provide insights, aid decision-making and tackle challenges for call-center operations and strategy.
  • Workforce Analytics. Empowers HR with insights and foresights at every step of the employee’s journey.
  • Biomarker Analytics. Uses semantic technology and predictive analytics to improve biomarker identification and utility to reduce drug development costs.
  • Claim-Center Analytics. A cross-condition learning algorithm to identify missing diagnoses.

Hybrid Cloud

Microsoft offers a unique hybrid cloud value proposition that gives an advantage over other cloud platform providers. The breadth and depth of this technology stack—both on premise and on the public cloud—along with Cognizant’s domain expertise and Constantly Ready Infrastructure (CRI) platform, help enterprises in their longer term cloud adoption journey with early ROI through expedited business agility and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Driven by a common goal—to serve our customers better—the combination of Cognizant’s global delivery model and Microsoft Azure’s efficient, low-cost cloud computing strength ensures that while Azure provides the architectural cloud building blocks, Cognizant provides the differentiating integration strategy and expertise to create industry and horizontal solutions that solve customer problems.

Two Pillars of Technology Join Forces to Energize Enterprise IT

Adopting a customer-first mindset is a must for any organization wishing to stay relevant in today’s market. But outdated IT infrastructure can impede such efforts. Cognizant is partnering with Microsoft to make a digital transformation–and a customer-first approach–more accessible than ever before.

Achieving Agility, Efficiency and Security with SAP on Azure

An on-premises SAP environment is a complex system that demands substantial investments in infrastructure, as well as a team of employees to build and sustain all systems involved. Cognizant has partnered with Microsoft to migrate customers from an on-premises configuration to a deployment on Azure. This cloud-based strategy will result in a far more cost-efficient, flexible and scalable environment.

The Cloud is the New Heartbeat of Healthcare IT

The healthcare sector doesn’t just need technology. It needs true solutions that not only solve current problems, but also pave the way for more flexible and agile ways of working, adapting and operating. Cognizant has partnered with Microsoft to bring their industry-leading TriZetto software to Azure Cloud, adding agility, automation and minimal risk to TriZetto deployments.
