Ovum, a market-leading research and consulting business focused on helping digital service providers and their partners thrive in the connected digital economy, has honored Cognizant with its 2017 ‘On the Radar’ Award for the Company's innovative use of technology that allows organizations to realize business value from its digital transformation journey. Ovum specifically hailed Cognizant’s Agile and DevOps solutions, including OneAgility, an integrated, modern engineering cloud-based solution that addresses obstacles in enterprise wide IT adoption and OneDevOps, a resuable DevOps platform solution.
The winners of the 2017 Ovum ‘On the Radar’ Awards were announced at the Ovum Industry Conference in London (October 10, 2017). The awards, judged by a panel of Ovum analysts, honor innovators in their respective fields and solutions they provide to the industry. The Ovum Industry Congress is an annual event that brings together IT leaders and enterprises to discuss the future of, and challenges facing, their industries.
The award was presented to Cognizant for its work with a national Dutch telecoms provider, leading to the increase in IT releases – from 3 releases per year to 27 – while decreasing release cycles from 12 to 2 weeks per release and for its work with a financial services regulator in the UK implementing an agile environment that reduced engineering costs while decreasing cycle times by 45%.
