KPMG-Studie: Cognizant in Deutschland und der Schweiz führend bei Kundenzufriedenheit und Kundenempfehlung

- 100 % der befragten Cognizant-Kunden sind zufrieden – hervorragende Bewertungen bei wichtigen Performance-Indikatoren

FRANKFURT/MAIN und ZÜRICH, 3. Dezember 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) hat in der von KPMG durchgeführten Outsourcing-Studie 2012 herausragende Ergebnisse erzielt. Bei der Umfrage zur Performance der Dienstleister erreichte Cognizant in den Kategorien „Kundenzufriedenheit" und „Kundenempfehlung" sowohl in Deutschland als auch in der Schweiz den Spitzenplatz.

Die Punktzahl von Cognizant in den Rubriken „Zufriedenheit allgemein" und „Weiterempfehlung durch Kunden" lag deutlich über dem Branchendurchschnitt. Besonders bemerkenswert: Ausnahmslos alle befragten Cognizant-Kunden zeigten sich zufrieden mit dem Service des Anbieters. Bei weiteren wichtigen Performance-Indikatoren lag Cognizant ebenfalls vorn, etwa in den Kategorien Kundenempfehlung, strategisches Relationship-Management, Innovation, Servicequalität, Risikomanagement, Flexibilität und Governance.

Die unabhängige Studie bewertet 16 globale und lokale Dienstleister, mehr als 300 Geschäftsbeziehungen flossen in die Bewertung ein. Im Fokus standen Unternehmen, deren IT-Ausgaben im regionalen Vergleich besonders hoch ausfielen. Befragt wurden vor allem CFOs, CIOs oder ihre direkten Mitarbeiter und Mitarbeiterinnen.

„Es freut uns, dass wir in der KPMG-Studie hinsichtlich der allgemeinen Kundenzufriedenheit in Deutschland und der Schweiz führend sind", so Santosh Thomas, Senior Vice-President und Head of Continental Europe bei Cognizant. „Diese Anerkennung konnten wir nur durch unsere Kultur der Kundenzufriedenheit erreichen – und dank des dazugehörigen Modells, bei dem Beratung und enger Kontakt im Mittelpunkt stehen. Kunden sehen in uns einen Partner, der die zwei Hauptaufgaben – nämlich Kostensenkung und Innovationsförderung – mit einer integrierten Plattform angeht. Dadurch wird es für sie einfacher, zyklische und strukturelle Veränderungen gleichzeitig zu bewältigen. Unsere Strategie besteht darin, die komplette Palette des Serviceangebots mit starken lokalen Teams und Kompetenzen bereitzustellen – damit stoßen auf hohe Resonanz im Markt. Wir sind stolz darauf, die höchste Kundenzufriedenheitsrate der Branche halten zu können."

„Cognizant hat von seinen Kunden hervorragendes Feedback erhalten und wurde bei wichtigen KPIs sehr gut bewertet", erläutert Jeff Loos, Head of Research für KPMG in Europa. „Nicht ein einziger Cognizant-Kunde äußerte sich unzufrieden. Daher hat das Unternehmen unter den 16 untersuchten globalen, regionalen und lokalen IT-Outsourcing-Dienstleistern die beste Bewertung erhalten. Die Ergebnisse bestätigen ähnliche Werte, die Anfang des Jahres in Nordeuropa erreicht wurden. Eine derart einheitliche Resonanz in verschiedenen Ländern und Märkten zeigt: Die kundenfokussierte Strategie dieses Unternehmens ist richtig."

Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
