14/03/2008
The new facility can accommodate 250 professionals and will serve North and South American customers.
Consulting-Times E-zine Cognizant has announced the official inauguration of its 35th global delivery centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The new centre will support Cognizant's North American customers in a similar time zone and provide a base for Cognizant to service customers in South America. Cognizant's association with Buenos Aires commenced in 2007 with a unique model of co-creating value for Kimberly-Clark Corporation (K-C), jointly working with their local teams. Cognizant has set up the new facility that has the capacity to accommodate approximately 250 professionals. Cognizant's Buenos Aires regional delivery will fully leverage the recently launched Cognizant 2.0 platform. This platform enables all of Cognizant's global, regional and local development centres to seamlessly and virtually collaborate through one central platform using the Web 2.0 technologies and deliver significant time-to-market, cost and transformational value to clients. Argentina is one of the fast growing economies worldwide due to increased local business demand and government support. The country has high levels of education borne out by its high rate of enrolment and strong output of quality business and technology students in higher education. In addition to cost advantages, sound IT and telecom infrastructure, the country offers a rich IT talent pool with good proficiency in Spanish.
