At the year's first Cognizant Snapshot Breakfast, Who Runs the Digitalization, and How? we learnt that the demands on governance are crucial for digital transformation, when daily activities will run in parallel with major change projects. Experiences were exchanged at the seminar from both global companies like SAAB and Trelleborg Group and start-ups like Instabridge.
Cognizant has been named a Top Employer in Europe for 2016 by Top Employers Institute in five countries—Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. The annual research undertaken by the Institute recognizes leading employers around the world that excel in offering outstanding employee conditions, develop and nurture talent through all levels of the organization, and strive to continuously optimize employment practices.
The trend is clear. Digitalization and regulation are two of the most top-of-mind topics for the banking and insurance industries.

WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, and similar instant mobile messaging apps are no longer exclusively intended for exchanging trivial text messages, sending ubiquitous selfies, or finding your friend’s house.
