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."

Enterprises have rebranded their business around the consumers of their products. The buyer is the person and the focus is not on the offering. The person is connected through multiple devices, wearables, at home, on the road, and in multiple locations, sometimes simultaneously...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip?
