    Fulfill the Promise of True Digital

    MANAGE CONSUMER EXPECTATIONS, IMPROVE OUTCOMES AND STREAMLINE OPERATIONS

    ACHIEVE SPEED AND RELIABILITY


    Digital transformation starts here. Tailor your application management strategy for different application needs and fuel change innovation by reducing your “run” spend.

    In the pivot to digital, applications are the fulcrum, driving the transformational change that keeps businesses competitive. With the growing demands of your enterprise, the application landscape becomes heterogeneous. That leads to increased complexity and redundancy, slowing time to value and increasing cost of delivery. 

    Providing you with an industrialized, holistic and integrated approach to address today’s IT requirements, Cognizant’s Application Management enables your organization to speed your digital journey, improve predictability, deliver business outcomes and minimize cost. 

    To ensure that you consistently realize the unique value of Cognizant’s Application Management in your portfolio, we employ an AI-based platform called Cognizant Applens?. In short, it is your springboard to achieving a truly digital organization.

    FULFILL THE PROMISE OF DIGITAL


    Reimagining digital systems management is the key to thriving in today’s dynamic world of managing complex applications. This calls for a much deeper understanding of your enterprise’s application landscape. 

    Cognizant’s application management strategy responds to this shift by categorizing applications into Consumer Engagement, Business Differentiation and Systems of Record. Tailoring management strategy to these application types can deliver the greatest return on investment.

    • DEBT MANAGEMENT

      • Identify and eliminate your application debts
      • Increase resiliency 
      • Improve time to value
      • Reduce operating expenses by up to 40%


      Debts are further classified as avoidable, unavoidable and residual, and corresponding remediation actions are defined, prioritized and implemented.
