Melbourne innovation hub created by Cognizant

Cognizant will establish a Digital Works Collaboratory in Melbourne, a dedicated space for businesses to design and build digital solutions.

The Collaboratory will include a showcase of new technologies in action, as well as a fabrication space for prototyping. Teams of strategists, designers, technologists, data scientists and human sciences experts will work with customers and partners to re-imagine business with new technologies. The facility will connect into the greater Cognizant global network of digital solution facilities.

“As physical value chains of the industrial era give way to more agile value chains with data and digital capabilities infused at every step of the process, the opportunity is to build new business and operational models, improve productivity and drive superior customer experiences,” said Gajen Kandiah, president at Cognizant Digital Works.

The announcement of the new facility was made following the visit of Philip Dalidakis, Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, to New York City.

“Cognizant is a world leader in building the digital economy and we welcome the company’s decision to locate their new Australia New Zealand HQ and state-of-the-art Collaboratory in Melbourne,” said Dalidakis. “This is a huge vote of confidence in Victoria as a magnet for tech and business investment, as well as a big boost for high-skill jobs in our booming tech sector.”

Cognizant first established its presence in Melbourne in 2006 and the city will now serve as the company’s Australian headquarters. The company delivers a wide range of technology, consulting and business process services in the region to more than 50 clients across industry sectors. In 2014, Cognizant acquired the Melbourne-headquartered Odecee, expanding its portfolio of tools and services.
