Cognizant Tops KPMG's Client Satisfaction Rankings Across Europe

Scores High on Key Performance Indicators

LONDON and AMSTERDAM, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) announced today that it has topped the client satisfaction and relationship rankings in KPMG's Outsourcing 2012 study of service provider performance across Europe.

Cognizant topped the rankings in general satisfaction and relationship management—both strategic and operational—with scores significantly higher than the industry average. In addition, the company secured top scores on several key performance indicators such as innovation, knowledge transition, and governance.

The independent study evaluated 22 European IT service providers based on an assessment of more than 2,900 unique client-provider relationships. As part of the study, CFOs, CIOs or their direct reports at some 1,100 of the top IT spending organizations in Western Europe were interviewed.

"Our top client satisfaction ranking across Europe in the KPMG study is a testament to our client-first culture that is at the heart of our differentiated business model and unique value proposition," said Rajeev Mehta, Group Chief Executive, Industries and Markets, Cognizant. "We remain committed to delivering a distinctly superior experience to our clients in Europe by nurturing strong client relationships, continuing investments to bring our industry-leading processes to Europe, and building strong local teams and capabilities.

"With major structural forces impacting every industry we serve, we believe that Cognizant is uniquely positioned to help clients turn market volatility into an opportunity for competitive differentiation, transforming their businesses to drive agility, innovation, and top-line growth. Amid globalization, regulatory changes, virtualization, and a confluence of new technology architectures such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud, clients are increasingly turning to a partner such as Cognizant that can help them achieve new levels of business performance," added Rajeev Mehta.

"We congratulate Cognizant for topping the satisfaction rankings in Europe yet again with excellent client feedback and top scores across several key performance indicators," said Jef Loos, Head of Sourcing Research for KPMG in Europe. "Cognizant's consistently superior levels of client satisfaction across multiple countries make the company a top performer amongst the 22 pan-European companies we evaluated. The findings affirm client confidence in Cognizant's consulting-led, relationship-driven business model, and its ability to deliver business value."

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
