Cognizant’s Prospects Driven by Strong Partner Base

Apart from Google Cloud, CTSH teamed up with NVIDIA NVDA, Microsoft MSFT and Clario to bolster its presence in the healthcare sector.

In the first quarter of 2024, Cognizant announced the integration of its generative AI technology with NVIDIA’s BioNeMo gen AI platform. The collaboration aims to address complex challenges in drug discovery within the life sciences industry, enhancing productivity in the development process and accelerating the introduction of new life-saving treatments to the market.

CTSH also partnered with Microsoft to incorporate gen AI into healthcare administration through TriZetto Assistant on Facets, leveraging Azure Open AI Services and Semantic Kernel to boost productivity, efficiency and patient care while maintaining regulatory compliance and data security.

In March, the company has been selected by Clario, a healthcare research technology company, to support its global IT infrastructure and applications, providing automation and digital technologies to reduce costs and accelerate time to market.

Conclusion

Despite an expanding clientele and strong partner base, challenging macroeconomic environment, along with weakness in the Financial Services segment, is a concern for CTSH’s prospects.

In the first quarter of 2024, Financial Services revenues decreased 6.2% year over year to $1.38 billion.

Cognizant’s shares have declined 14.5% against the Zacks Computer & Technology sector’s growth of 9.8% year to date.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the second quarter is pegged at $4.81 billion, indicating a decline of 1.63% from the year-ago reported level.
