Invensys Operations Management announces that it has strengthened its strategic relationship with Cognizant, a leading provider of consulting, technology and business process outsourcing services.
Invensys Operations Management, a division of Invensys is a leading provider of automation and information technology, systems, software solutions, services and consulting to the global manufacturing and infrastructure industries.
The new go-to-market agreement will accelerate the delivery of Invensys Operations Management’s InFusion Enterprise Control System-based solutions for customers in the manufacturing and process industries.
Steve Blair, President, Invensys Operations Management, North America views the agreement as the logical next step in their relationship with Cognizant after having joined forces on product development last year.
He adds that the partnership will complement their delivery mechanism since it takes their R&D collaboration to a strategic alliance where they will jointly deliver consulting and solutions across their mutual clients’ operations and business systems. The alliance will specifically focus on large-scale, open integration utilising the InFusion Enterprise Control System (ECS).
InFusion Enterprise Control System
The InFusion ECS overcomes traditional barriers to achieving real-time visibility, enterprise-wide profitability and operational excellence across an entire business.
By linking independent systems and personnel that do not normally communicate or collaborate, the InFusion ECS acts as a system of systems to provide critical, real-time business and operating information that can enhance enterprise-wide decision-making and improve overall profitability.
Ravi Gopinath, President, Invensys Operations Management, Asia Pacific comments that the partnership will add tremendous value to their clients.
While Invensys will focus on creating and delivering innovative, real-time solutions for the operations management space, Cognizant will complement these services with their consulting and system integration capabilities in enterprise IT solutions.
He adds that the two companies will leverage new and existing client relationships where there is an opportunity to provide enterprise control solutions and services to support these clients.
Venkateswaran Mahesh, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing and Retail Practice, Cognizant adds that their proven capabilities in enterprise systems integration and analytics will help deliver a compelling value proposition to Invensys customers by way of industry-aligned enterprise control solutions.
