Conduent seeks to recover over USD150m damages from Cognizant

Conduent Inc. has filed a lawsuit against outsourcing major Cognizant Technology Solutions alleging breach of contract and fraud action in a court in the state of New York. The 45-page lawsuit seeks to recover damages of over USD150m through the litigation filed on April 12. The dispute between the two companies involves the replacement of the electronic processing system for New York Medicaid Management Information System. Conduent alleged that Cognizant failed to perform, and it neglected to follow even the most rudimentary software development processes, unbecoming of an organization that claims the highest levels of professional certifications.
