Guiding IT departments to net zero

As businesses adopt cloud platforms and innovative solutions to create a strong technology backbone, there is also demand for IT capabilities that support sustainability goals. For this reason, today’s IT teams are tasked with finding solutions that support decarbonization and align with corporate sustainability agendas. 

At Cognizant, we empower businesses to think and work sustainably by increasing awareness, knowledge and accountability for their overall sustainability strategy. We leverage the full potential of cloud, optimize operations and modernize the software architecture stack to reduce IT carbon footprints and make progress toward reaching net zero goals.

Delivering industry 4.0 applications

Today’s manufacturers are accelerating their digital transformations and meeting sustainability goals using our best-in-class Connected Factory solution. We use Microsoft Azure professional services to deploy industry 4.0 applications along with Cognizant's APEx (Asset Performance Management Excellence) connected factory accelerator. 

Our APEx accelerator includes pre-built services and templates that allow you to integrate devices, systems, processes and people on the Azure IoT cloud platform. These services help speed the creation of core industry 4.0 applications and monitor overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) via meta-modeling and pre-built dashboard templates.

Achieve and maintain ESG compliance

Companies are facing more pressure due to new legislation that requires the disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance data. This makes high quality ESG reporting key to a company’s funding future.

To effectively do ESG reporting, businesses need better data management and governance, leaner processes, accurate visualization and insight as well as streamlined, precise reporting of outcomes.

At Cognizant, we’re helping companies improve operational transparency and measure their ESG risks and opportunities by identifying the best strategies and methods to verify ESG compliance and reporting KPIs.
