New Jersey-headquartered IT services provider Cognizant has been recognized as a Leader and Star Performer in the Digital Workplace Services sector by the Everest Group. According to Digital Workplace Services PEAK Matrix Assessment 2019, a report recently compiled by Everest, a Dallas-based management consultancy, Cognizant particularly impressed in terms of its vision and strategy, innovation and investments, and its delivery of services intended to personalize and boost the overall employee experience. The report also singled out the IT services provider’s partnerships in several key areas (including virtualization, analytics and AI) and its strong thought leadership for particular praise. At the core of Cognizant’s operation is WorkNEXT, its proprietary digital workplace services solution.
This is said to deliver cloud access, automation, analytics and personalization technologies, while ensuring employees can work productively pretty much anywhere and anytime. Among its integrated facilities are cognitive virtual assistants, augmented knowledge discovery, and experience analytics, which together can automate tasks, enhance productivity and boost the employee experiences through the use of tablets and smartphones as office workstation extensions. Commenting on the recognition, Vinod Kumar, Cognizant’s vice president for cloud and infrastructure services, said being named a Leader and Star Performer is proof our experience and our commitment to helping customers boost business productivity, while providing freedom of choice for employees looking to optimise their work activities.
