- Scores High on Key Performance Indicators

LONDON and AMSTERDAM, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH)
announced today that it has topped the client satisfaction and relationship
rankings in KPMG's Outsourcing 2012 study of service provider performance
across Europe.

Cognizant topped the rankings in general satisfaction and relationship
management—both strategic and operational—with scores significantly higher
than the industry average. In addition, the company secured top scores on
several key performance indicators such as innovation, knowledge transition,
and governance.

The independent study evaluated 22 European IT service providers based on an
assessment of more than 2,900 unique client-provider relationships. As part of
the study, CFOs, CIOs or their direct reports at some 1,100 of the top IT
spending organizations in Western Europe were interviewed.

"Our top client satisfaction ranking across Europe in the KPMG study is a
testament to our client-first culture that is at the heart of our
differentiated business model and unique value proposition," said Rajeev
Mehta, Group Chief Executive, Industries and Markets, Cognizant. "We remain
committed to delivering a distinctly superior experience to our clients in
Europe by nurturing strong client relationships, continuing investments to
bring our industry-leading processes to Europe, and building strong local
teams and capabilities.

"With major structural forces impacting every industry we serve, we believe
that Cognizant is uniquely positioned to help clients turn market volatility
into an opportunity for competitive differentiation, transforming their
businesses to drive agility, innovation, and top-line growth. Amid
globalization, regulatory changes, virtualization, and a confluence of new
technology architectures such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud, clients
are increasingly turning to a partner such as Cognizant that can help them
achieve new levels of business performance," added Rajeev Mehta.

"We congratulate Cognizant for topping the satisfaction rankings in Europe yet
again with excellent client feedback and top scores across several key
performance indicators," said Jef Loos, Head of Sourcing Research for KPMG in
Europe. "Cognizant's consistently superior levels of client satisfaction
across multiple countries make the company a top performer amongst the 22
pan-European companies we evaluated. The findings affirm client confidence in
Cognizant's consulting-led, relationship-driven business model, and its
ability to deliver business value."
