INNOVATORS TRANSFORM THE FUTURE

Cognizant is a world leader in transforming businesses from “doing digital” to “being digital.”

This digital innovation is powered by people. The main engine for innovation is not some magical technology—it’s more about humans than machines. Cognizant is looking for innovators—not just inventors.

Curiosity is at the heart of a Maker. A Maker is one that is deeply engaged in experimentation, collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking. Makers play with technology to learn about it. They figure out how things are made, how to fix them or how to use them in a whole new way. They discover their creative talents and believe in using them. These are essential skills that will be necessary for the future of work. As hands and mind work in tandem, failures become opportunities, risks become rewards and inspiration becomes motivation. All of us are Makers.

Today’s inspiration is tomorrow’s innovation. Let’s make the future together.
