Verizon and Cognizant Announce Alliance to Enhance the Delivery of Technology-Based Solutions to Enterprise Clients

Verizon and Cognizant have announced an alliance to enhance the delivery of technology-based solutions to enterprise clients. Together the companies will work with organizations to define, design, deploy and manage new technology solutions that advance the digital business models of their customers. Cognizant and Verizon will provide enterprise clients with a set of high performance, reliable solutions focused on digital transformation, integration and business process support, technical expertise, networking and other solutions. As part of this alliance, joint customers will be able to experience large-scale technology demonstrations at Verizon's Innovation Centers in San Francisco and Waltham, Mass. that will be powered by a new test-bed lab the companies are building. The lab and its technology will enable clients to visualize enterprise-scale projects versus simply viewing and testing point technology offerings.
