Cognizant has been named the “Development Team of the Year” by Computing Magazine’s Digital Technology Leaders Awards in the UK.
Established to recognize the achievements of the individuals and companies who are at the heart of the digital technology stack, the awards recognize those in the IT industry from website design and coding to user experience, project management, and beyond. Criteria for the awards include:
- Launch of new, innovative features, including internal or end-user facing.
- Evidence of delivered benefits, such as boosting client’s sales or reducing time to market of key services and offerings.
- Showcasing the team’s excellence and operational abilities.
- Seamless integration with back-office systems and rapid project lifecycles.
The award was based on a project led by Cognizant’s digital engineering team for a global financial services provider. The solution improved onboarding time for the client’s B2B users to the client’s systems by 5X. During the delivery phase, Cognizant deployed five pod teams, each of which was a multi-skilled, cross-functional unit. These pods supported the end-to-end product life cycle, using the latest scaled agile methodology, DevOps practices, and automated testing, expediting delivery cycles by 50%. Cognizant teams delivered an agile decoupled architecture, taking an API-first approach and using microservices for core business logic.
A finalist in six of the awards categories, Cognizant was also highly commended in the category of Digital Team of the Year with Boots UK, part of the Retail Pharmacy International Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance.
“We are so pleased to be recognized as Development Team of the Year,” said Sanjiv Gossain, Head of Cognizant Digital Business, Europe & Latin America. “These awards are a testament to the outstanding work our teams have done to bring leading-edge digital innovation to our clients through digital engineering, cloud, and data and analytics.”
