Companies emerging in the technology industry in general are vastly growing. Specifically, there are some out there that focuses on business solutions, consulting and outsourcing for other businesses. One of which is the US-based Cognizant.
Cognizant is a telecom American multinational business corporation that provides digital, technology, consulting, and operations services. It is based in Teaneck, New Jersey, United States. It was initially founded as an in-house technology unit of Dun & Bradstreet in 1994, and started serving outside clients in the year of 1996.
The first IPO of Cognizant was made in 1998 after a couple of corporate subsidiary creations and restructures of its predecessors.
