We help Industrial Manufacturers speed up product development, enhance service capability and reduce operating costs.

Global supply chains, localized products and virtualized product development are changing the nature of Industrial Manufacturing. Additionally, industrial manufacturers must develop smart and connected products and move from pure product selling to services based business models for their end customers.

We help makers of durable and non-durable products harness technology to develop smart products, adapt operations for new markets, roll out engineering collaboration platforms and refine manufacturing execution systems.

CAPABILITIES

Our Design Thinking framework helps clients envision innovation possibilities and uncovers breakthrough opportunities using Digital. Cognizant Digital Works provides the technology architecture and implementation capabilities. Our Partner eco-system brings together the best-of-breed technologies to cover the entire Digital value chain.
