Cognizant’s ability to help clients transform their businesses draws strength from an important fact: we embody the Future of Work. We were "born global" and we have a unique understanding of the emerging world of business. We are a virtual organization with leading-edge tools, such as Cognizant 2.0, that facilitate collaboration across a global workforce. We are made up of millennials and we recognize the importance of this generation of workers and consumers. We live the future of technology and put the cloud, social media and other platforms to practical use every day—for our clients and ourselves.
Client-First Mindset: At Cognizant, our clients come first. That has led us to create a business model designed to serve the needs—and achieve the goals—of our customers.
Two-in-a-BoxTM Relationship Model: In our proprietary Two-in-a-Box model, a Cognizant partner on-site within the client’s organization is partnered with a senior delivery manager near-shore or offshore, ensuring seamless coordination between the client’s requirements and our service delivery.
Talented Teams: We strive to employ the best and brightest in our industry: people who can think strategically about clients’ needs and are empowered to make a difference.
Global Understanding: Cognizant was “born global." We began as the India-based technology operation for Dun & Bradstreet. As a result, we have a unique global history, perspective and mindset that has inspired and guided our expansion around the world.
Collaborative Capabilities: Our pioneering Web 2.0-based platform, Cognizant 2.0, enables real-time knowledge management and the seamless sharing of work across our global network.
Commitment to Innovation: Our investment in innovation is helping clients address the Future of Work—providing solutions for an environment being reshaped by globalization, virtualization, a millennial mindset and evolving technologies such as social networking, mobile communications, big data analytics and cloud computing.
Strategy of Reinvestment: Our commitment to continuous reinvestment in new services and capabilities helps ensure Cognizant will be able to respond to our clients’ needs today and tomorrow.
Financial Strength: Cognizant’s ability to invest in new solutions, expand our global capabilities and add to our talented team are supported by a strong financial foundation based on a robust balance sheet and industry-leading growth.
