  TEANECK, New Jersey, June 11, 2013

TEANECK, New Jersey, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH)
today announced the successful deployment of a web-based Order
Management-as-a-Service (OMaaS) platform for GoWireless, a leading wireless
reseller, to help the company launch its online commerce capability and
generate new levels of business performance. OMaaS is one of Cognizant's
recently announced BusinessCloud ^(SM) solutions—a suite of ready-to-deploy,
on-demand business and IT solutions.

This Software-as-a-Service platform centrally hosts the software and
associated data on the cloud. It enables communication service providers and
resellers to meet the increasing demand of wireless buyers to shop online for
an increasingly complex array of wireless products, services, and accessory
offerings. As more customers choose to purchase wireless services through
third-parties, Cognizant's multi-channel enabled platform helps GoWireless
attract and retain customers by providing integrated best-in-class services
across the web, the phone, and in person.

Designed to be a subscription-based service that can be configured to the
specific needs of communication service providers and resellers, OMaaS enables
rapid time-to-launch, eliminates upfront capital outlays, and links
operational expenses to order volume. It integrates the web and in-store
customer experience for shopping, ordering, fulfillment, social and care, and
provides real-time analytics and reporting capabilities for improved
decision-making.

"This engagement marks an important milestone in our journey to deliver the
best customer experience in the wireless industry," said Mark Borges, Chief
Information Officer at GoWireless. "Cognizant's OMaaS solution accelerates our
time-to-market, providing an integrated e-commerce and retail experience and
expanding our capabilities to deliver innovative services to our customers,
such as GoAdvantagePlus+ and Ready 2 Go."

"We are pleased to have delivered a comprehensive e-commerce order management
solution for GoWireless using our OMaaS platform," said Todd Weinert, OMaaS
Venture Leader at Cognizant. "In an increasingly competitive environment,
OMaaS enables communications providers to maximize operational agility and
improve business outcomes while providing a seamless, service-based customer
experience. By aligning pricing with our client's business results, the
platform helps them enhance their market share and drive deeper competitive
differentiation."

About Cognizant's BusinessCloud ^(SM) Solutions Cognizant BusinessCloud ^(SM)
solutions enable clients to quickly deploy a range of on-demand business and
IT solutions without the larger capital outlays and longer implementation
timelines that are often associated with traditional on-premise solutions. The
portfolio includes offerings that leverage two models—Software-as-a-Service
(SaaS), which centrally hosts software and associated data on the cloud, and
Business Process-as-a-Service (BPaaS), which integrates a SaaS platform
together with people and process capabilities to deliver an end business or
technology outcome for a client. Cognizant's investment in BusinessCloud ^(SM)
addresses the increasing client demand for business models that deliver
outcomes with a pricing model that is increasingly variable rather than fixed.
