Orchestrate the right path to Enterprise Agility and IT Modernization using Cognizant’s OneAgility Unified Reference Platform

Agility is crucial for any modern organization to launch disruptive products and modern digital systems. How do enterprises grow new markets and react to dynamic marketplace?

Technology leaders are attempting ways to leverage emergent forces, realize business strategy through refinement of their portfolios and stay competitive. But organizational and technical challenges impede the possibilities along the journey. Cultural inertia results in slow adoption, Siloed departments, heterogeneous configuration of tools and traditional waterfall practices seems like a dead end.

Cognizant’s OneAgility helps IT modernization by focusing on Agile Frameworks, DevOps automation, modern teams, modern engineering, modern technologies and organizational change management. It paves the way for comprehensive enterprise scale transformation.

OneAgility Platform is fungible end to end Next-Gen IT framework that integrates process blueprints, reference architectures, engineering tools and practices to drive true IT agility. It helps envision customer future state, with flexibility to jumpstart towards desired state by leveraging accelerators on the cloud within OneAgility Lab.

The workshop would demonstrate end to end simulation of value flow from development through release with automation of key processes using industry best practices and tools chain integration in OneAgility Lab.
