Cognizant is ranked No. 17 on the inaugural Fortune Future 50 list. The list is Fortune’s new forward-looking measure of the top 50 U.S.-listed companies with the best prospects for breakout growth.
Independently developed in conjunction with The Boston Consulting Group, the Fortune Future 50 is divided into two lists: the 25 Leaders, which includes Cognizant along with such companies as Salesforce (#1), Tesla (#2), and Facebook (#3), that are companies with a market value above $20 billion and the 25 Challengers with market values below $20 billion, which includes Veeva Systems (#1) and Workday (#2).
According to Fortune, the index has two pillars: 1) a market view of growth potential and 2) an assessment of the firm’s actual capacity to deliver that growth, based on four dimensions: strategy, technology and investments, people, and structure. The result is a composite score that represents both a new metric and new perspective for business analysis.
The Fortune Future 50 scoring system extensively leverages nonfinancial data to achieve its forward-looking view, giving insights on predictive factors not visible from financial data alone. Additionally, machine learning was harnessed to leverage unstructured data and tease out predictive patterns.
