Cognizant’s application value management services provide an industrialized, integrated approach to address today’s IT requirements. This enables your organization to optimize cost, improve predictability and deliver business outcomes that enable digital transformation and ensure a successful user experience in the following ways:
Debts incurred in your application can increase maintenance spend. So, it’s imperative to have a structured methodology to arrest them. Cognizant’s debt management framework helps identify, classify and eliminate your inherent application debts (technical, functional, operational and knowledge), reduce manual effort, increase resiliency and improve time to value. This approach, bundled with proactive measures such as application strengthening, self-healing and problem management, supports your journey toward work elimination.
Reducing effort through robotic automation driven by artificial intelligence delivers both cost benefits and accurate results. When you couple predictive analytics with smart knowledge management, you can improve throughput and accelerate time to value. The Open Architecture Application Management Automation from Cognizant® Automation Center helps enhance the user experience, optimize maintenance spend, increase service predictability and avoid vendor lock-in.
Cognizant achieves an industrialized, integrated approach by standardizing the delivery of services through a suite of frameworks called Cognizant AVMplus® to help organizations realize the dual mandate of improving efficiencies and delivering outcomes.
