Cognizant recognized as lead player in Asia-Pacific’s AI consultancy sector

Cognizant has been designated as one of the leaders in the Asia-Pacific AI consultancy sector. The New Jersey-based IT services provider was singled out for its operational excellence in a review conducted by Forrester Research, a Massachusetts-headquartered specialist in high-tech market intelligence. The review – an annual initiative by the company – saw 10 of the region’s service providers evaluated across 24 criteria, including current offering, strategy and market presence. This saw Cognizant receive the highest scores in five key areas – data, data science and analytics, partner ecosystem, past performance and deal size. Putting the results into perspective, Achim Granzen, Forester Singapore’s principal analyst, said only those consultancies with distinct strengths in data science and analytics, data engineering and business domain management can ensure that their clients truly benefit from adopting AI technology. Acknowledging the award, meanwhile, Jayajyoti Sengupta, chief executive of Cognizant’s APAC and Japan operations, said being recognised as a leader in the region’s AI consultancy sector was an apt testament to Cognizant’s commitment to helping businesses augment the existing accomplishments of their employees, customers and partners via the appropriate integration of smart systems.
