Cognizant’s Prospects Rides on Expanding Clientele

Cognizant’s strong partner base, which includes the likes of Shopify SHOP, Alphabet’s GOOGL cloud business, Google Cloud, McCormik & Company, and NVIDIA has been a key catalyst. Its robust pipeline, which includes a favorable mix of new opportunities, is noteworthy.

Cognizant’s partnership with Shopify and Alphabet’s Google Cloud bolstered its presence within the retail industry to drive digital transformation and platform modernization for global retailers and brands, focusing on leveraging the power of Shopify’s commerce platform, Google Cloud’s infrastructure and Cognizant’s retail industry expertise.

Cognizant recently announced a partnership with McCormik & Company to manage global technological infrastructure through AI-driven tools to improve user experiences, productivity and cost savings, thereby advancing McCormick’s digital transformation journey.

In March, Cognizant further expanded its footprint within the healthcare sector through its partnership with NVIDIA.

Cognizant teamed with NVIDIA to apply gen-AI technology to transform drug discovery, aiming to accelerate development, reduce costs and improve patients’ outcomes while expanding into other sectors such as manufacturing and automotive industries.

However, Cognizant’s shares have declined 10.6% against the Zacks Computer & Technology sector’s rise of 7.8% year to date.
