Cognizant is continuing its buying spree with the acquisition of independent Microsoft public cloud transformation specialist New Signature.
This is the professional services company’s fifth cloud-related acquisition this year, as it continues to strengthen its ability to help clients become fully digital, data-enabled, customer-centric businesses.
New Signature is an award-winning Microsoft partner focused exclusively on Microsoft technologies, with an integrated offering across all three Microsoft business clouds – Azure, Microsoft 360 and Dynamics 365.
With operations in the US, UK, Canada and South Africa, it was Microsoft U.S. Partner of the Year in 2014 and 2015; a Microsoft IMPACT Canada award winner in 2018; and Microsoft UK Partner of the Year in 2019. It is one of 70 certified Azure Expert Managed Service Providers worldwide and has 16 Gold Microsoft Competencies or specialisations.
New Signature’s 500+ cloud experts will strengthen Cognizant’s hyperscale cloud advisory services and provide the basis of a new group within Cognizant specialising in Microsoft cloud solutions, the Microsoft Business Group.
Cognizant was recently named a 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year in three categories: SAP on Azure; Government; and U.S. Partner for Modern Workplace – Apps & Solutions for Microsoft Teams.
