Cognizant and Google Cloud Expand AI Partnership

Cognizant and Google Cloud recently announced an expansion of their partnership to enhance the software delivery lifecycle and accelerate developer productivity.

Cognizant will adopt Gemini for Google Cloud in two ways: first, by training Cognizant associates to use Gemini for software development assistance; and second, Cognizant is integrating Gemini’s advanced capabilities within its internal operations and platforms. Using Gemini for Google Cloud, Cognizant’s developers will be equipped to write, test, and deploy code faster and more effectively with the help of AI-powered tools, improving the reliability and cost efficiency of building and managing client applications.

Through the collaboration, Cognizant and Google Cloud will utilize Gemini to deliver a broad range of benefits to enterprise clients across industries, helping them build applications quickly, rigorously test code, and swiftly remediate issues to optimize performance throughout the software delivery lifecycle.

“Software development is one of the jobs likely to benefit most from the way generative AI is redefining the anatomy of work,” said Ravi Kumar S, CEO, Cognizant. “Cognizant has committed to investing $1 billion in generative AI over three years because we believe it is a powerful tool to amplify human potential, and our partnership with Google Cloud is central to this commitment, and to realizing this vision.”

Over the next 12 months, Cognizant will invest in enabling more than 70,000 associates across multiple Cognizant functions on Google Cloud’s AI offerings. Additionally, Cognizant will work to integrate Gemini into its suite of automated platforms and accelerators, beginning with the recently announced Cognizant Flowsource platform for developers.

“Generative AI has the potential to significantly improve every stage of the software delivery lifecycle, helping developers quickly generate code, troubleshoot issues, and automate processes,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud. “By training and enabling its workforce on Gemini for Google Cloud, Cognizant can expedite the speed and quality of software development projects for joint customers.”

Google Cloud will support Cognizant in the continued development of AI-led software engineering best practices, and by helping the Cognizant Google Cloud AI University launch advanced courses on AI use cases.
